An uncommon journey: from Vienna to Shanghai to America : a brother and sister escape to freedom during World War II
September 1939 - Nazi Austria turns on their Jews and the family Wacs flees Vienna, saving their lives.
Destination: Shanghai; alien to them-different language, people, culture.
Had they not escaped, one week later war broke out, and this family's fate might have been quite different.
An Uncommon Journey addresses universal issues-persecution and the will to survive.
This unique memoir by a sister and brother ten years apart shares different memories, often of the same events.
The truth becomes a mosaic with many facets, creating a moving portrait of a family uprooted.
