A heartbreaking story of loss and love.

As autumn turns toward winter in 1938 Berlin, life for Marianne Kohn, a young Jewish girl, begins to crumble. First there was the burning of the neighbourhood shops. Then her father, a mild-mannered bookseller, must leave the family and go into hiding. No longer allowed to go to school or even sit in a café, Marianne's only comfort is her beloved mother. Things are bad, but could they get even worse? Based on true events, this fictional account of hatred and racism speaks volumes about both history and human nature.

From Our Editors

In 1938 Berlin, young Marianne Kohn is bewildered. Mysterious men who come in the night have burned shops in her neighbourhood to the ground. Then her father-a mild-mannered bookseller-leaves the family to go into hiding. Told to stay inside at all times, Marianne clings to her mother. What is to become of them? Based on true events, Good-bye Marianne is a sensitive portrait of a young life in Nazi Germany.
