In the upcoming weeks, I will give two lectures from my book „Letzte Zuflucht Schanghai“ (Last Refuge in Shanghai; published by Heyne). It tells the true and highly unusual love story between Robert Sokal, a poor refugee from Vienna, and Chenchu Yang, a young lady from a well-to-do Chinese family. They met during World War II in Shanghai and, despite of all opposition and the dramatic circumstances in this “age of extremes”, they became a couple.
The lectures will be in German. You are kindly invited to attend:
