  • It's a place to visit and know about China's history and the Jewish refugees that were able to scape from Europe and go here. I didn't know China received jews refugees with open arms... 
  • I did not expect to spend an entire day at the museum. For all the history buffs, this museum is a definite must-go destination.
  • The Jewish Ohel Moshe Museum and Synagogue tells a fascinating story of 23,000 Jews who escaped Nazi Germany by coming to Shanghai, China. This is a great piece of little known history in Asia, relating to WWII in Germany. The building itself is interesting, but not large. The presentations, both in video and museum formats, are very interesting. They tell the general story, as well as many individual stories of people who lived there, most temporarily for about 10 years. We happened to come when there was an English translator, so that helped a lot. But, even without a translator, all of the written stories are in English, so one could still learn a lot. If you like learning about history, this is a gem.
  • Must visit while in Shanghai!
  • 犹太难民纪念馆。馆不是很大,真正流传下来的原始资料也有限,有些都是07年后照着当时的情景还原的,但在这里依旧看得到20世纪的影子,有那么几分钟觉得自己像是穿越了。我们这两个民族在上个世纪都遭遇了同样的惨绝人寰,却仍旧在今日蒸蒸日上。没有厚重的历史,不会有丰富的现代。
  • ✏ "history belongs to the concession area in Shanghai offering basket Bridge Road the most Hi-gate lilong. Center of this region is providing hot bridge, was once a water based one.
