Shanghai protected European Jews during the second world war. Learned quite a bit. The Japanese occupation force although allied with the Nazi's had a Jewish district and protected it's Jews. Interesting. Shanghai also had a tradition of Jewish trading merchants and always had a small...More

Very interesting exhibits about some interesting Shanghai history. Renovations were being done when we visited, so I assume that the museum will only get better. Easy to get to on the subway.

A very powerful experience. A great education of the role played by Shanghai during the holocaust. It was amazing how these Jews who escaped there, managed to keep their traditions and customs so far from where they came in such a different culture.

We had no idea of the jewish history in Shanghai and this visit was extremely informative. We went on our own. Short cab ride from the Bund area. We were warmly welcomed and free tour was excellent.

History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but
Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood.
Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during
the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can
still be found in buildings and park monuments.
Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood
throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without
taking you too far away from the city center. Some of
