By Horst "Peter" Eisfelder
German Holocaust survivor recounts experiences as a teenager in Shanghai/Nanking during World War II.

Chinese Exile

  • A Holocaust survivor recounts his experiences living in China during World War II. Living in Berlin in 1938, with every other door closing to Jews trying to escape Nazi Germany, Shanghai was the only alternative left for the Eisfelders--13-year old Horst and his family. Horst Eisfelder's meticulous eye for detail and his remarkable photographs takes the reader on a fascinating journey of the Jewish community and its exotic surroundings. There are more than 80 photos from their arrival in 1938 to their departure for Australia in 1947.
