Formal Ohel Moshe Synagogue & Hong Kou district was built in 1927 as the Ashkenazi Synagogue of Shanghai. It no longer serves as a synagogue but as a museum devoted to the Jews in Shanghai.
The museum holds many sculls and other cultural relics. The Jewish refugees lived a free and peaceful life around the former Ohel Moshe Synagogue. The life in Shanghai was so memorable and they considered Shanghai as their second hometown and called themselves "Shanghai Jews". Between 1937 and 1941 in Shanghai's Hongkou district more Jews found sanctuary in China than in any other country in the world. Its thriving community became known as the Jewish Ghetto.
Sassoon House with the attached Cathay Hotel (today it is Fairmont Peace Hotel) and Palace Hotel (today it is part of Peace Hotel) were founded by Sir Victor Sassoon of Iraqi Jewish descent. It has been a Shanghai landmark for over eight decades - enjoying a premier location on the Bund, facing the Pudong area over the Huangpu River.
The Bund is a famous waterfront and regarded as the symbol of Shanghai for hundreds of years. The most famous and attractive sight, which is at the west side of the Bund, are the 26 various buildings of different architectural styles
