This compilation recalls the stories of 25 students and faculty members of the University of Hong Kong during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong in the 1940s. Their stories of imprisonment or escape, mainly to China, and their unshakable resolve to keep the university going captures the spirit of those challenging times. The university was re-established by many of these people in 1948.
