It's been 65 years since Nina Admoni left Shanghai, a place that holds so many troubled and happy childhood memories for her and thousands of Jews around the world.

"It's been so long since I left my 'home' to Shanghai. The people there, the place where I lived, are so close to me, it's like it was yesterday in my mind," the 80-year-old Israeli told the Global Times during an interview in her home in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Admoni was one of thousands of Jews who sought shelter in China to avoid being murdered by Nazis during World War II.
