Dvir Bar-Gal presents: Sweet & Sour Safe Haven – Jewish Refugees in Shanghai

959 577

At the start of WWII, 20,000 Jewish refugees made it to the cosmopolitan city of Shanghai, even as the revolution was raging in China and the Japanese were about to occupy the city. Please join us for this fascinating story of resilience, historic turmoil, hardship, kinship and compassion, featuring our distinguished guest Dvir Bar-Gal, an Israeli TV creator and photojournalist who has made Shanghai his home since 2011.
