Album Notes

Shanghai Exodus features the stories of Caucasians who grew up in China, migrated there for safety, and fled Shanghai after the Communist revolution.

These personal stories of struggle, survival and success provide a historical glimpse into what it was like to grow up in China while experiencing an early blending of cultures as the East and West collided.

Old Shanghai was a unique cross-cultural environment; a mixture of Asian and European settlements which formed the world’s first and largest international community. Children growing up in Shanghai were imprinted with a unique perspective and worldview which made them the world’s first “global citizens.”

Shanghai was a safe haven to which tens of thousands fled to escape the Russian Revolution and the rise of Hitler’s Nazi Germany. When communism finally began to rise in China, its sudden impact was felt and feared by every foreigner who lived there — people gave up everything they had and fled in masses. But to the “Old China Hands,” Shanghai and China are still considered home, and many keep coming back to find their past.

These are their stories. Memories from a very special place in time... a place called Shanghai.
