A bookshop in Berlin

£10.99

In 1921, Fran̤oise Frenkel Рa Jewish woman from Poland Рopens her first bookshop in Berlin. It is a dream come true. The dream lasts nearly two decades. Then suddenly, it ends. It ends with police confiscations and the Night of Broken Glass, as Jewish shops and businesses are smashed to pieces. It ends when no one protests. So Fran̤oise flees to France, just weeks before war breaks out. In Paris, on the wireless and in the newspapers, horror has made itself at home. When the city is bombed, Fran̤oise seeks refuge in Avignon, then Nice, which is awash with refugees and terrible suffering; children are torn from their parents; mothers throw themselves under buses. Horrified by what she sees, Fran̤oise goes into hiding. She survives only because strangers risk their lives to protect her.
