SHANGHAI 1937: Where World War II Began

When did World War II begin? It began on August 13, 1937… in Shanghai. That day, after six years of “Incidents” initiated by the Japanese military, China at last “stood up.” The struggle to control Shanghai previewed the horrors that would eventually engulf Europe and Asia, as well as set into motion the events that created contemporary China. Still, at its heart, this is a story of shattered lives and enduring dreams.
