That’s my parents in front of my mother’s Viennese coffee house in Shanghai.

The Jews established their own little town in Shanghai. There were boutiques, butchers, restaurants and Viennese Cafés.

They had everything, like in Berlin or Vienna. My mum opened a small Viennese café, the “Wiener Stüberl”. She baked apple-strudel and other pastries.
