Giveaway: 5 more copies of Japanese Girl at the Siege of Changchun

Michael Palmer - Tuesday, December 20, 2016

Due to the overwhelming number of entrants in last week's giveaway of Homare Endo's Japanese Girl at the Siege of Changchun, we gave away 5 more copies! Learn about the true story of a young girl's survival during the horrid Siege of Changchun during WWII, an event that the Chinese government will not acknowledge.

"An important work, a reminder of humanity’s boundless potential for compassion or cruelty, once war forces a fight for survival... [It] vividly captures the psychological and physical trauma of surviving war... Endo’s memoir is also a call to action. It’s part of a history that has been deliberately ignored, and deserves to be remembered."—The Japan Times
