Jewish Refugees in Shanghai (1933-1941)

  • Jewish Refugees in Shanghai (1933-1941) is a traveling exhibit created by the Shanghai Jewish Refugees Museum. Located in the former Ohel Moshe Synagogue in the Tilanqiao Historical Area, the museum has taken a significant role in educating local and international visitors about the unique story of Jewish refugees in Shanghai. From 1933-1941 Shanghai opened its doors to over 18,000 Jewish refugees fleeing persecution and war in Europe, transforming the city into an “open city for Jews” at a time when much of the rest of the world was closed.

  • Visit the exhibit from March 19 to May 7, 2015 at the Sabes Jewish Community Center (4330 S. Cedar Lake Road, Minneapolis, MN 55416). For more information, go to (http://confucius.umn.edu/jewish-refugees-in-shanghai/index.php).
