Field Tour - 'Jewish' Shanghai, 2004

On a hot May day the YCIS Year 9 History classes visited various sites in Shanghai in support of their studies on World War II and the Holocaust. This included the Childrens Palace (former home of Sir Elly Kadoorie), Hong Kou (the old Hong Kew ghetto area), plus a survey of buildings on Shanghai's famous Bund.
