The museum tells a wonderful story of the trials and tribulations of the refugees who ended up in Shanghai and their triumphs in the end. The exhibits were hard to read and the stories moving so one wants to read every one of them.

It seemed like a more unusual choice to visit the Shanghai Jewish Refugees Museum, but I'm glad I did. It gave insight into a part of Shanghai history (and of course, Jewish history) that I was unaware of. The museum provided background and context to...More

A really amazing story is contained in this building -- how thousands of Jewish refugees were saved by emigrating to the open city of Shanghai in pre-WWII times. The displays are well done and the stories fascinating.

It was touching and well done, both the general story as well as plenty about the individuals involved. The mailbox where they'd try to send packages to loved ones back in Vienna (whom they knew were dead) made me cry.
