Owner description: Shanghai's Jewish legacy and experience. A half day eye-opening tour of an extraordinary story guided since 2002 by Israeli Journalist Dvir Bar-Gal. From the media: "Bar-Gal, rich with knowledge and full of humor, takes his visitors along on a mesmerizing journey into an amazing, sweet and sour world. A world where opium dealers, old world colonialists, real estate moguls, hard working poor Chinese migrants and Jewish holocaust survivors mix. "

I was very interested in the tour but one could also pick up a map at the Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum that lists all the sites in the area where the Jewish refugees were. The tour is great for those who want to hear stories and receive a lecture about the Jewish community in Shanghai. Dvir is obviously very passionate!

A great and unusual way to spend a half day in Shanghai. Dvir, the tour guide is not only knowledgeable but passionate about his subject, having devoted years to its study and to working to recover the tombstones of Jewish graves. His presentation is well thought out and compelling. The story he has to tell of the Jews in Shanghai has three chapters—the Baghdad entrepreneurs of over 100 years ago; those who fled Russian programs and the Holocaust refugees—and each is fascinating.
