ANTI-SEMITISM NOW: HOSTED BY ABRAHAM H. FOXMAN
With Liang Pingan, Senior Research Fellow at Shanghai International Studies University in China
Pignan highlights the four distinct diasporas of Jewish life in China, beginning with the Kaifeng Diaspora, where Jewish life has existed since The Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127), and ending with an exploration of Shanghai’s Hongkew district, which encompassed what became known as the Shanghai Ghetto where Jewish life flourished during World War II.
This talk is made possible by the generous support of Varda Yoran.
