Description


So Very Far From Home tells the stories of American, British and Australian children sent to brutal, overcrowded prison camps in Japanese-occupied China during World War II. While the war eventually ended, China still lives in their hearts today. For Patricia Dunn Silver, it's the memory of July 4, 1943 when a group of imprisoned parents and children defiantly sang the one song their Japanese captors had forbidden - The Star-Spangled Banner.
