Summary
"In 1939, the Third Reich was closing its iron grip around the lives of Germany's Jews. Most Western nations, not willing to involve themselves in volatile European politics, had shut their doors to Jewish immigrants. Tens of thousands of Middle-European refugees, fleeing Hitler's brutal regime, set their hopes for freedom on Shanghai--the only open port available. Eleven-year-old Ursula Bacon was one such refugee, narrowly escaping with her parents from the clutches of the SS. After traveling 8,000 miles from their lifelong home and witnessing the arrest of fellow passengers, they arrived in Shanghai only to discover that the long arm of Nazi influence had extended into China"--From publisher description
