Tour Highlights
Huoshan Park
Not covering much ground, the Huoshan Park used to be a backyard for the Jewish community. You can identify a former shelter for Jews inside. Nowadays, locals utilize it for recreational and civic purposes.
Tilanqiao Jewish Isolation Region
From 1934 until the end of the World War II, nearly 20,000 Jews inhabited the Tilanqiao Area, resulting in several old European-style buildings and a sense of history. It is the only place where wartime Jewish refugees congregated. Nowadays, the brown-colored houses shelter ordinary people, who go about their daily lives not that much different.

    The buildings in the Huoshan Park and Tilanqiao Jewish Isolation Region was old. While visiting, the guide told the events happened there. It’s very helpful for our sightseeing. And there were many historical items displayed on the Jewish Refugees Museum. I had a glimpse of the history of Jewish people during the World War II. The Shanghai day tour was very meaningful!
