Shanghai: Safe Haven During the Holocaust highlights the little known story of Jewish refugees who fled Nazi persecution to Shanghai, China. The exhibition at the Illinois Holocaust Museum features 22 large-scale photographs by the late American Jewish photographer Arthur Rothstein. The photos provide a window into the lives of refugees who found tolerance and a temporary home during the turbulent years of World War II.
Reset brings you an overview of the exhibition and a first-hand account of the ordeal from a Shanghai survivor.
GUESTS: Arielle Wieninger, chief curator of collections and exhibitions at Illinois Holocaust Museum
Doris Fogel, Shanghai survivor
