Ruth's Record (Paperback)

Ruth Hill Barr


The year 1941 was a turning point for the world, but long-time Shanghai resident Ruth Hill Barr had no way of knowing that when she started her five-year diary on January 1st. Before the year was over, the Japanese Army had occupied Shanghai's International Settlement, and she and her family were stranded as enemy aliens, soon to be placed in a Japanese internment camp. This book includes the full text of her diary along with explanations and memories by her daughter Betty, revealing with fascinating detail the anguish - and, incredibly, the continuity - of life inside and outside the camps.
