Next, hop in the minivan and travel to the Jewish Ghetto in Hongkou. See the Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum, housed in a converted synagogue, and a monument in Huoshan Park. Wander the district’s lanes and visit a home where Jewish refugees once lived. Hear fascinating stories from your guide, an expert on Shanghai's Jewish history, and return to the Peace Hotel with a new understanding of a vanished world.
