Strangers always : a Jewish family in wartime Shanghai / by Rena Krasno.
"This is a vivid, different kind of history--history as actually lived by an eyewitness who candidly tells how events unfolded for ordinary people during the war in the Pacific. It is a story of coming of age in chaotic times, from the unique perspective of a young woman in the Jewish community of Shanghai. We see, hear, and feel the concrete details of life in the diverse community of Shanghai. We learn how events perceived by people entrapped by war who endeavored to seek the truth through smuggled information, jammed radio broadcasts, and reading between the lines of Japanese censorship."--dustjacket.
