Summary"The autumn of 1938 was cold in Berlin, and Marianne Kohn's world was crumbling. First came the burning of neighbourhood shops. Then her father, a mild, good-natured bookseller, was forced to live in hiding. Marianne was no longer allowed to go to school, to a cafe, or even to sit on a park bench. The noose around Germany's Jews was growing tighter and tighter. Based on actual facts of the Kindertransporte which saved thousands of Jewish children before the outbreak of the war." —Back cover
