1939. Germany. As Hitler's army gains momentum, only one port remains open to thousands of fleeing Jewish refugees: Shanghai, China. Inspired by the memoirs of many, and told through the eyes of a fiercely resilient young woman. On The Other Side of the World tells the dramatic and incredible, rarely told true story of a young girl, her family, and a community who sought shelter and survival in a country and culture unlike their own.
