The old Jewish Quarter won't take you too long to visit, but well worth it; the surrounding neighborhood has some interesting houses and parks to see, finishing in the museum that was an old synagogue. It is remarkable to see the evidence of how the old international settlement leaders in Shanghai accepted tens of thousands of Jewish refugees from Europe on the eve of WWII when most of the rest of the world would not. The displays are terrific, especially the display on the recent reunion where so many children who had been in Shanghai came back to visit in 2006. The volunteer staff are friendly, charming and very welcoming -- everyone seems proud of both the museum and the history it represents, and they should be.
