Jewish Refugees in Shanghai (1933-1941)

January 2016 - March 2016

Describing the journey of hope for more than 18,000 Jews to China, Jewish Refugees in Shanghai (1933-1941) is a collaborative effort to share information about the unique experiences of Jewish refugees in Shanghai during World War II. The cornerstone of the project is a historical exhibit curated by the Shanghai Jewish Refugees Museum, enhanced with additional stories of “Shanghailanders” with University of Hawaii connections.

The exhibition contains more than 40 exhibition boards, some smaller photos and some fake documents that look real: passport, newspaper, etc.
