Product Description:

This book is edited by Rena Krasno, public officials of the California association of Jews in China, she compiled this book according to the diaries of Fred Marx, and the diaries are mainly from 1939-1949. Fred Marx was born in Germany, once lived in China, and then immigrated to America.


Rena Krasno was born in Shanghai, China, in 1923 and lived there until 1949. Her parents, stateless Russian Jews from Siberia, arrived in China in the early 20th century. In her professional life, Krasno worked as a simultaneous freelance interpreter for international organizations in Europe and Asia. Krasno has lectured at Stanford University, U.C.L.A., U.C. Berkeley, the Commonwealth Club, and other well-known institutions in America, Asia, and Europe. She is currently Public Affairs Officer of the Sino-Judaic Institute in Menlo Park, California, as well as a member of the Editorial Committee of their publication, Points East. Krasno was featured in several documentaries including the Chinese one (Sanctuary Shanghai. Chen Yifei, 1999). Nine of Rena's books have been published, including Floating Lanterns and Golden Shrines (Pacific View Press, Berkeley, a winner of 2002 Benjamin Franklin Publishers Award). Three of her published books have been translated into Chinese.


In the spring of 1989. I met Rena Krasno in California, USA. Rena was very excited to see me, the guy from Shanghai. She asked me many questions about the city's changes and development. Her love for China and Shanghai moved me, especially when she said, "I really want to go back to my hometown——Shanghai, which I have left for 40 years." In 1994, I got the chance to help Rena return to Shanghai. At that time, with the support of the Shanghai government, we decided to host the first international academic conference with the theme of "Jews in Shanghai". As a member of the conference's organizing committee, I suggested inviting Rena to attend and deliver a speech at the conference. She recorded her feelings about revisiting Shanghai at the end of this book. She said that she could not express in words how excited she was upon receiving that invitation. She was trembling as the plane descended for landing. As soon as she set foot on Shanghai soil, she felt she had returned home. Rena delivered a wonderful speech at the conference. She said, her nationality aside, Shanghai was her hometown, because she was born and raised in the city. How touching is that? In those days, Rena had been immersed in her memories and recollections. She walked along Huai hai Road (formerly Avenue Jof fre) for a long time and never got tired. She revisited Aurora University (Shanghai Second Medical University in 1994) and College Municipal Francais (currently Shanghai Science Hall), where had studied. She spent a lot of time in the city's old district and tasted many local snacks, such as bannock, twisted crullers and roasted sweet potatoes. Sometimes, she just sat and watched Shanghai people going about their time, living their lives. She also visited the Tower Apt. (Xiang yang South Road Junction.
