Summary"The play opens on November 15, 1938, six days after the launching of the government planned and sponsored anti-Semitic program called Kristallnacht—the Night of Broken Glass. It is the day that German State schools closed their doors permanently to Jewish students. Young Marianne's world crumbles; hostility surrounds her every step. Her father is in hiding from the Gestapo and her mother surrounds her every step. Her father is in hiding from the Gestapo and her mother surrounds her with over-protectiveness. Then, Marianne meets Ernst, a boy staying in her apartment building while on holiday in Berlin. They have a lot in common, but then Ernst discovers Marianne is Jewish, and she sees him in the uniform of the Hitler Youth." —Back cover
