William Tanenbaum, an avid traveler and graduate of Columbia University, has completed his new book “Future Memories”: a gripping and potent story of Jewish teenagers fleeing Nazi persecution in Poland for, what they assume, is a safe haven in Shanghai.

Published by Page Publishing, William Tanenbaum’s captivating tale follows three Jewish teenage students who escape from Poland in 1940 before the German occupation of the country is complete. Although reluctant to go, they leave their families behind, anticipating returning to their families after the war. This gripping novel focuses on their lives from the moment of their departure from Poland through the time spent in Shanghai, and the uncertainty of where they will be after the war.

The main characters endure unimaginable fear and suffer hardship in their struggle to reach Shanghai. In Shanghai, they become three of the over 20,000 Jews who have sought refuge from the war raging in Europe. However, with the Japanese occupation and control of Shanghai, the students, as well as the Chinese, suffer intolerable living conditions throughout the war.

Memories of family and home help these Jewish students survive. Little do they know these memories will be all that remains of their life from pre-war Europe. This is the enthralling story of the journey of these three students and what will become their future memories.

Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchase “Future Memories” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
