A Picture of Swiss Presence In Shanghai Before 1949

by swisscham in General Interest

In collaboration with Swissnex China, Swisscham, the Consulate General of Switzerland organized an event addressing the topic of Swiss Presence in Shanghai before 1949. The Keynote speakers in the evening were Ms. Bao Zhong from Shanghai Library and Dr. Daniel Nerlich from ETH Zurich. Ms. Zhong used plentiful historical material e.g. newspaper, manuscript, etc. to illustrate the life of Swiss residents in Shanghai before 1949. The first Swiss residents in Shanghai are traced back to 19th century. Most of they were settled in the French Concession and the international Settlement.  Before the founding of Swiss General Consulate in Shanghai in 1921, the Swiss Rifle Club, later the Swiss Club, was the most active Swiss organization in Shanghai since 1911. Dr. Daniel Nerlich is the deputy director of the Achieves of Contemporary History at ETH Zurich. He just completed his three-month sabbatical program at Swissnex. During the three months in China, his main project was to reiterate the path of Walter Bosshard from Xi’an to Ya’an.
