Life in Shanghai in the late 1930s was good to Daphne Allen Dunn. As the wife of the city's most prominent doctor, she enjoyed all of the glamour that the city's International Settlement could provide. But on December 7, 1941, everything changed. The Japanese army occupied foreigner-controlled Shanghai and Daphne's status shifted from international socialite to enemy alien and then internment camp prisoner. Her story is one of immense fortitude and determination. Blending humour with hardship, savvy with suffering, Internment in Shanghai is an awe-inspiring tale of an irrepressible spirit in times of hardship.
