Collar, Hugh, Woodroffe, Pauline, MacPherson, Kerrie L.
This book is a first-hand account of the experiences of the foreign community in Shanghai under Japanese occupation, seen through the eyes of Hugh Collar--the de facto head of the British community, and from 1942-1945 chief representative in an internment camp for 'prominent persons' and 'dangerous criminals' in the city. Written immediately after the Japanese surrender, this moving testament recounts how Collar found himself not only responsible for the welfare of the community, but also answerable to the Japanese for the actions of each member of it. In an understated style, Collar details the problems encountered, both before and after internment, in outwitting the Japanese bureaucracy, combatting rampant inflation, organizing selective repatriation, and providing relief for the increasing numers in great need.Collar, Hugh is the author of 'Captive in Shanghai: A Story of Internment in World War II', published 1991 under ISBN 9780195850048 and ISBN 0195850041.
