Vail Symposium: “The Last Kings of Shanghai”

Event Details

“The Last Kings of Shanghai” with author Jonathan Kaufman

Location | Vail Interfaith Chapel

Join Jonathan Kaufman, author of “The Last Kings of Shanghai,” for the remarkable story of two Jewish families, both originally from Baghdad, who stood astride Chinese business and politics for more than 175 years, profiting from the Opium Wars; surviving Japanese occupation; saving the lives of 18,000 Jews fleeing Nazi persecution and losing nearly everything as the Communists swept into power. Produced in collaboration with Bnai Vail

The Vail Symposium is a grassroots, non-profit organization which provides educational programs for the Vail Valley community.  These are intended to be thought-provoking, diverse and affordable events for all.
