Join us for a special virtual tour of Shanghai: Safe Haven During the Holocaust, a special exhibition of the Illinois Holocaust Museum.

The exhibit sheds light on when European Jews trying to escape Nazi persecution found hope in an unlikely place – Shanghai, China. In 1946, American photojournalist Arthur Rothstein began documenting the lives of Jewish refugees who called Shanghai home.

Following the virtual tour, Jessica Rockhold, MCHE Executive Director, will lead a discussion about the experiences of local survivors who fled to Shanghai.

This event is free and open to the public.

Presented in partnership by:
