Past the special significance that the museum personally holds for me, the site was a surprise find in the middle of Shanghai. When you walk into the courtyard in the back and look at the architecture and infrastructure of the surrounding area you would never know that you were in China, but rather standing somewhere in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The adjoining annex in the courtyard is eye opening to an important, yet relatively unknown, component to one of the darkest chapters in human history. It's easy to forget China's role in the Jewish escape from persecution in Europe. However, this facility stands as a testament to an easily overlooked part of history.
