  • I went to the Jewish People's Museum in Shanghai. It is small and the product is incomplete. It is about the lives of civilian people, but compared to those who fight against civilian prisoners, it 絀. At this resistance museum, I found that the exhibits were well organized, with lots of photos, videos and items. After reading the museum, you will feel that life is very harder, but you will not be crushed by grief. On the contrary, the museum will stimulate you, encourage a man to be more strong. After the end of the audience, you can visit the nearby Jewish Museum. Here you are Annifer a walking guide to the Kerber Museum.

  • Beautiful Museum with audio guide in French. Very interesting and playful for children. Too bad there is not a sense of traffic.

  • A very dense, informative museum. There's so much in here that you'd either need to return several times to process it all, or spend several hours going through it very slowly. The rotating set of exhibits (The Dutch invasion through German eyes was on display when I went) add another dimension to really help you understand the Dutch resistance.
  • Very informative museum, but very dense. There is no way you can read all the information in here. Shows what life in the Netherlands was like during ww2. Also features a section talking about the Dutch colonies in Asia during the war, which I found very interesting and important as there is not usually much attention given to that area during that period
