During the first seventeen years of his life, spent in Shanghai, Sam experienced wars, changing regimes, different currencies and a variety of schools that reflected the evolving political landscape. In a world obsessed with conflicting nationalism, his family survived as stateless residents, neither subject to, nor the responsibility of, any country. They were instead, sustained by their Russian Jewish culture and community. Through Sam s memories of early life and his love of history, we learn of Shanghai s uniqueness as a home and haven to thousands of Jews over many centuries.

About the Author:

Born in Shanghai, Sam Moshinsky migrated to Melbourne, Australia, in November 1951, at the age of seventeen. He studied at The University of Melbourne where he obtained a Bachelor of Commerce degree, which led to a successful career as a chartered accountant. Later he became a financial executive, a professional director and an adviser on numerous corporate boards. Sam has also chaired the board of many Jewish organisations including the United Israel Appeal, Temple Beth Israel, the Jewish Museum of Australia and The Australian Jewish News. In June 2000, Sam was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia in recognition of his contributions to Jewish organisations and the general community.
