First published in 1945, this memoir tells the story of one woman’s struggle to survive persecution in wartime France.

In 1921, Françoise Frenkel – a Jewish woman from Poland – opens her first bookshop in Berlin. It is a dream come true. The dream lasts nearly two decades. It ends after police confiscations and the Night of Broken Glass, as Jewish shops and businesses are smashed to pieces. No one protests. So Françoise flees to France, just weeks before war breaks out.
