As more and more Jewish refugees from Germany and Austria desperately tried to escape Nazi terror at the end of the 1930s, there were few places for them to find refuge. But Shanghai remained an option.
Sonja Mühlberger was born in Shanghai, where her parents had found refuge from the Nazi regime. The city of her childhood has changed dramatically. And yet she can still find traces of the old, Jewish Shanghai.
Sonja Mühlberger visited the city in search of her roots, and is amazed at how much it has changed.
For Sonja Mühlberger's family, Shanghai was a secure haven during the Holocaust.
