About 20,000 European Jews fled to Shanghai in order to avoid persecution by the German Nazis in the 1930s and 1940s. At that time, most countries closed the doors and Shanghai became the only option for those desperate Jews. During their stay, they received kindness and generosity from their new Shanghai neighbors, especially after the establishment of the Designated Area by the Japanese authorities in Shanghai. The Shanghai Jewish Refugees Museum focuses on the Shanghai experience of these Jewish refugees, explains the historical context, shows historical artifacts and tells their personal stories. In this lecture we explore this fascinating history to show people’s resilience and optimism under difficult circumstances as well as friendship between different nations.

CAI Qin 蔡沁 graduated from the Law School of Shanghai Jiaotong University and started working at the Shanghai Jewish Refugees Museum in 2020. She participated in the expansion project of the museum and is currently a researcher at the Exhibition and Research Department.
