Survival in Shanghai: The Journals of Fred Marcus 1939-49, [commentary by] Audrey Friedman Marcus and Rena Krasno, Berkeley, CA: Pacific View Press, 2008, 254 pp.

Most Americans are blessed in that they have not known what it means to live through a war, much less having to escape to save your life. We read about war and displaced persons, or refugees, and this is another world. Turning to fiction, or even a history of a certain time and place, generally we get broad statements, an overview, not the day-to-day events which make up the nitty-gritty details of ordinary life. How refreshing then, to read Survival in Shanghai: The Journals of Fred Marcus 1939-49. In 1939, Fred Marcus and his father were among the too few Jews who were able to leave Germany and so, escape the Holocaust's death grip. They travelled seven thousand miles to Shanghai, on China's eastern coast. Little did they realize that shortly thereafter Japan would occupy Shanghai, and remain there throughout the War.

Daily life for refugees was both precious and precarious. Marcus's journals cover the war years, but in particular the last two years, 1944-1945, and then several years later until he leaves in 1949, bound for the United States. Marcus had a keen eye for detail. He recorded his thoughts and observations, writing about what he did personally, and the wider effects of life in the Shanghai Jewish ghetto upon his fellow refugees, and to an extent, native Chinese.

Originally written in his native German, these diaries were recently translated into English. Authors Audrey Friedman Marcus (Fred's wife) and Rena Krasno have provided a fascinating commentary, alongside many explanations that both expand upon and offer context to the journal entries themselves.

Supplemented by many pages of photos, a good bibliography, and an index, this work divides into three sections: Escape from Evil; Aftermath of War, and Home at Last.

Marcus' descriptions, his attention to details, and keen insights into what was going on around him, his ingenuity, and courage under difficult circumstances, and often deteriorating conditions give a vivid and forthright picture of those years. This book is a fascinating and enlightening read.

Reviewing "Survival in Shanghai: The Journals of Fred Marcus 1939-49" written by Audrey Friedman Marcus and Reno Krasno with a Foreword by Deborah E. Lipstadt.

This book combines Fred Marcus's diary entries chronicling his life and daily struggles during WWII in Shanghai with contextual information and commentary by Audrey Friedman Marcus and Rena Krasno.

With the rise of anti-Semitism in their homeland of Germany, Fred and his father made the difficult decision to leave their home and board a ship headed for the distant city of Shanghai. Fred's diary entries, originally written in German, beginning in 1939, demonstrate the deteriorating situation for Jews, among others, in Germany immediately before the time he and his father departed for Shanghai. His diary entries provide a first-hand account of a young Jewish boy's experience of WWII in Shanghai, as well as a glimpse into the cultural, social, and political climate that governed the lives of those living in Shanghai during this period of history.

Audrey Friedman Marcus and Reno Krasno provide insightful contextual information and commentary alongside Fred's diary entries that reminds the reader of the larger circumstances in which Fred lived and wrote. Their observations and interpretations in regards to Fred's diary entries at times serve to clarify or explain cultural references or facts, but also, at many points throughout the book, demonstrate the larger implications of the struggles Fred faced and the events he writes about. Marcus and Krasno point to moments when Fred's struggle to survive in WWII Shanghai can relate to the struggles faced by many displaced and persecuted people during this terrible time in history.

This book provides a valuable and vital first-hand account of a relatively unknown aspect of WWII. It demonstrates the resiliency not only of Fred Marcus, but of the people around him and those who were similarly persecuted and displaced as a result. This book also reveals the strength of those who left their homeland and traveled to an unknown land and city in order to escape the persecution of the Nazis during WWII and the trials and hardships these people shared.
