Fodor's Review

Built in 1927, this synagogue, the spiritual center of Shanghai's Jewish ghetto in the '30s and '40s, now houses the Jewish Refugee Memorial Hall of Shanghai. More than 20,000 Central European refugees fled to Shanghai during World War II, and the museum has a good selection of photos and newspaper clippings. Around the corner is Huoshan Park, where a memorial tablet has been erected in honor of Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin's 1993 visit.
