Ohel Moshe Synagogue, Shanghai

62 Changyang Lu
Tel: 86 21 6541 5008's insider take:

During the 1930s and 40s, more than 10,000 Jews fleeing Nazi persecution landed in Shanghai, which offered refuge to "stateless individuals." Herded by occupying Japanese soldiers into the Hongkou district's narrow houses, they patiently waited out the war years, many in greatly reduced circumstances. Built in 1927, the Ohel Moshe Synagogue now houses the Jewish Refugee Museum, which features black-and-white period photographs and an attic bedroom frozen in time; a 2007 renovation will add more exhibit space. Though little remains of the rest of the former Jewish ghetto, you can explore its crumbling remnants in an informative tour led by Israeli journalist Dvir Bar-Gal (86-130-0214-6702).
