SHANGHAI DIARY : A Young Girl's Journey from Hitler's Hate to War-Torn China.
Milwaukie, OR: M Press, (2004.)
Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format) for the 2nd edition (originally published in 2002.) In 1939, when she was just 11 years old, Ursula and her parents were among the last Jewish families to be able to get out of Germany - and at the time, when of the few places open to Jews was the city of Shanghai, the 'armpit' of the world as one sailor described it. Twenty-thousand Jews found refuge in this city already teeming with people; this is an account of the hardships they encountered, but also the friendships and the helpfulness, and also an account of coming to age in a world torn by war. A fascinating account. Photographs. 267 pp. Fine in printed white wrappers .
