Summary
From the oppressive scenes of 1930's Berlin where Francoise Frenkel had established her French language bookshop, to her escape back to Paris and on through the south of France, this is the story of her dignified yet increasingly desperate attempts to flee from France as the Nazi noose tightens. It is her story but it is also the story of every refugee fleeing persecution, clinging to every shred of dignity as they are left with no choice but to rely on the kindness of strangers. Like so many others, Frenkel is compelled to keep moving, spending time in Avignon, Vichy, Nice and Grenoble, as she attempted to survive in a world disintegrating around her. Her observations of and interactions with the French, both those who denounce her and those who themselves brave denunciation in offering her refuge, provide us with an insight into how humanity strives to assert itself in the dark interstices of a society imploding.
