Giveaway: Japanese Girl at the Siege of Changchun by Homare Endo

Michael Palmer - Tuesday, November 29, 2016

This week, in celebration of its recent publication, we are giving away 5 copies of Homare Endo's Japanese Girl at the Siege of ChangchunThe 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
