In the years 1938-1940 about 18,000 Jewish people found refuge in Shanghai, China. Some came by boat, some came by land. They settled in the district of Hongkou and started new life here, without knowing the language and the customs of this new and far land. They got married, gave birth, started businesses. A small but beautiful and informative museum, really worth a visit.
Earlier in the week, we did a tour of the Jewish ghetto in Shanghai where my mum was born, lived and grew up. It was a very emotional time & the book in the photos was a record of Jewish refugees up until mid 1939 & records my grandmother’s brothers entering #livingmemory
