Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Forbidden is a 1984 made-for-television film about a wealthy German countess who hides her Jewish boyfriend in her apartment in World War II. Jacqueline Bisset portrayed the Countess and Jurgen Prochnow starred as her lover. The plot is loosely based on a true story originally told in the non-fiction book The Last Jews In Berlin by Leonard Gross. German countess Nina von Hadler is a student in veterinary medicine in Berlin, Germany on the eve of World War II. Ostracized by her family due to her liberal views and opposition to the Nazi government, she lives alone, independent and strong-willed. The film opens with Nina studying at the library the day Germany invades Czecheslovakia. She is angered and tells a classmate she knows the reasons Hitler gave for the invasion are a pack of lies
