Repast

Although Shanghai’s Jewish newcomers narrowly freed from the Nazi oppression, majorities of them were penniless and lived a hard life. Even so, unexceptionally all of them were mentally calm. Though only coarse food was available in the refugee camp because of the bad living conditions, every one behaved well in taking meals. Their faces brimmed with optimistic smiles, and their words betrayed their never-ending new hope for a bright future.
