Milwaukie, OR: M Press, (2004.). 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.
Condition: Fine in printed white wrappers
