This is another side of Shanghai, besides the famous tourist spots, there are still a lot of places worthwhile to visit. When students came to Hong Kong, I normally would like to show them the other side of Hong Kong; so when I go to Shanghai, definitely I would also like to see the other side of this city.My student is now a voluntary guide in this museum. I summoned my other students to listen to her lecture and again I am in the position of audience. This time real spectator and audience, not exchanging position in the internship of Brave New World. She gave a brief introduction how Shanghai provide asylum for those Jewish who escape from the Nazi massacre.This cafe is not a genuine cafe, just an imitation or exhibition of the days of Jewish people during the second World War. It was really the name plate of a coffee shop, but business deceased later and now moved into the museum for exhibition.This is the famous Memorah (猶太教燭台), can be seen all over the world. They use this to celebrate the Hanukkah ( 光明節). The Festival is in early December, so a lot of people misunderstood that this is part of the ornaments of Christmas. When I was in Chicago, the caretaker of the flat was a Jewish and he even lighted this Memorah in the concierge (禮賓部). Shanghai provided a refugee to those Jews in need. My trip to Shanghai also provided refugee to students in need and in desperate. My task is not just running internship in Finance, but to provide asylum to those in negative thoughts and to generate sunshine for those in positive thoughts.
