Our guide that we had personally had more interesting and organized information to share with me, she was much more conversant in the history and the background on the Jewish refugees. The museum guide really was struggling in English although she gave it a good...More
I decided to come to this museum before my visit. It is a small but excellent museum which tells the story of how Shanghai provided refuge to Jews who escaped from the Nazis. It is very moving and uplifting to experience this historical story.
Visited the Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum yesterday, which is a very well prepared small presentation of the remarkable Shanghai Ghetto period. Excellent artifacts well explained in a newish building. Full list of the names of everyone from the period on the sculpted plaque outside.
Though a bit out of the way for your average tourist I found this small museum to be quite interesting. The Hong Kuo district is seldom seen by visitors but I've always enjoyed it (I lived in S'hai from "07 to '14). The history of...More
Really easy to access by metro.
Very interesting history of the Jewish community in Shanghai and how it allowed entry during the war.
There was plenty of material in English, including the personal accounts which were really atmospheric.

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
the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.

Hi you don't need to have a tour guide to visit this historical place. This shows you how one man helped so many people to leave the horror of the Nazis in Europe. I took a cab to the museum which has audio guides and movies, then walked around the neighborhood and visited all the places mentioned in all the books on Shanghai. China is simply amazing in terms of fascinating discovery of thousand years of history, art, philosophy, sciences, medicine, ....The Chinese people are truly hospitable and kind and fun...
