My class is learning about conflict and justice. We took a field trip to the Jewish refugee museum, which is very cool because I am Jewish and I love history. On one floor you can learn about the Nazi death camp and how the Jews lived. Another exhibit tells stories about Jewish refugees who went to shanghai and what where... More

We are Israeli and especially made a point of visiting the Jewish museum in Shanghai. We weren't disappointed - it was a very moving experience. The whole museum is done in an outstanding way and makes you feel as though you're living the experience. A definite must!

Built in 1927, the former Ohel moshe synagogue was also the headquarters of the Jewish Youth Organization. Between the year 1937 and 1941, Shanghai has received 25,000 Jewish refugees and became the only metropolis in the world which did not refuse Jews. The number of Jewish refugees that Shanghai took in was equal to the total taken in by Australia,... More

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
