  • Bacon, Ursula.
    SHANGHAI DIARY : A Young Girl's Journey from Hitler's Hate to War-Torn China.

    Edition: Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format) for the 2nd edition (originally published in 2002.)

    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.
