The Shanghai experience of European Jewish refugees is part of the Holocaust memory which should never be forgotten. Reflections upon the Shanghai experience offer valuable lessons for the present and future. Given the historical background, let us hear the testimonies of former Jewish refugees which are part of the Holocaust record. Let us hear about their decisions to flee Nazi Germany, their travel to Shanghai, their re-establishment in Shanghai, their encounters with Japanese, their interactions with Chinese and how they remembered Shanghai after leaving. Their words are touching and more revealing than words from others. The Shanghai Jewish Refugees Museum, founded on the site of former Ohel Moishe Synagogue in 2007, participates in recording the Shanghai experience of former Shanghai Jewish refugees.
