In 1941, the Japanese Army newspaper reported the Pearl Harbour attack. The Japanese made propaganda of this incident, exaggerating it to show the invincible might of their military. The news came as a bombshell, for they had placed high hopes on the Americans to deliver them from the Japanese. Life in Hong Kong under Japanese occupation was unbearable. The University of Hong Kong encouraged the undergraduates to go to interior China to continue their studies there and promised to give them a stipend each month to cover their expenses. Frances Wong decided to go and her parents wanted her to take her younger brother Gia Yuan with her. This chapter further describes Wong's life and journey to inland China, the Sun Yat Sen University, setting up a home, Pui Lian Middle School, Xinxing, and post-war Guangzhou.
