So Very Far From Home

Categories: History, Politics

So Very Far From Home tells the stories of American, British and Australian children sent to brutal, overcrowded prison camps in Japanese-occupied China during World War II. While the war eventually ended, China still lives in their hearts today.

For Patricia Dunn Silver, it's the memory of July 4, 1943 when a group of imprisoned parents and children defiantly sang the one song their Japanese captors had forbidden -- The Star-Spangled Banner. Shanghai was once seven year-old Ronald Morris' playground, but during the war years hunger was his constant companion. For Pamela Masters, a brash British teenager, months of imprisonment brought her within seconds of taking her own life. The war meant it would be years before Mary Taylor Previte would see her parents again.

What happens when the only world you ever knew is gone, and "home" is a place you've never seen?
