From the website of the museum:

From 1933 to 1941, Shanghai became a modern-day “Noah’s Ark” accepting around 30,000 Jewish refugees fleeing the Holocaust in Europe. In the “Designated Area for Stateless Refugees” in Tilanqiao area of Shanghai, about 20,000 Jewish refugees lived harmoniously with local citizens, overcoming numerous difficulties together.

The metro station is on the back side of Montmartre, and a scenic starting point to explore the area. Across the street from the metro is Le Refuge, an atmospheric cafe where time seemed to stand still.
