Shanghai Refuge: A Memoir of the World War II Jewish Ghettoby Ernest G. Heppner
"A fascinating and moving memoir that begins with [Heppner's] childhood in Nazi Germany and moves briskly from one compelling scene to the next."-Forward. "The author describes in detail the sights and sounds of his adopted environment, the mingling of Jews and many nationalities, the choking stench and the humidity, the decadent, exotic underworld of criminals and beggars, the terror of air raids and Japanese guards, the rampant poverty and disease. The general tone, however, is positive, even inspiring, and behind all the experiences lurks a sense of adventure and simple good luck."-Association of Jewish Libraries Newsletter.
