Horst Eisfelder recently wrote the book,
CHINESE EXILE, and
subtitled "My years in Shanghai and Nanking 1938
to 1947". Horst wrote the original manuscript in 1972, following
requests by the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Since then many
photocopies were distributed to universities, libraries and museums
around the globe.
What makes the book different from the earlier
manuscript, is that it was extensively revised. It features some 80
photos, mostly taken by the author, and documents of those times.
Unlike others who write about their Shanghai experiences, Horst
Eisfelder does not have to rely on fading memories to describe events
that happened 65 years ago. Horst made notes on events as they happened
during those years. He also has a large collection of Shanghai newspaper
clippings during his years in Shanghai.
The book can only be
obtained through its American publisher, Avotayno Inc. at 155 N.
