Good Night, Maman
Karin LeviÂs world of family, school, and friends is torn apart when the German army occupies Paris in June of 1940. Karin and her brother, Marc, like Jews all over Europe, find themselves on the run, seeking safety wherever they can find it. When Marc obtains two coveted places aboard a ship bound for the United States, Karin knows that crossing the ocean means she may never see her beloved parents again. Yet she and Marc have little choice if they are to survive. KarinÂs unforgettable story--revealing the little-known world of a handful of European refugees in World War II America--tells of survival, of growing up, and of loveÂs ability to endure even the most extraordinary circumstances.
