The Year of Goodbyes

A True Story of Friendship, Family and Farewells

Amazon.com Rating:

Like other twelve-year-old girls, Jutta Salzberg enjoyed playing with friends, going to school, and visiting relatives. In Germany in 1938, these everyday activities were dangerous for Jews. Jutta and her family tried to lead normal lives, but soon they knew they had to escape — if they could, before it was too late.

Throughout 1938, Jutta had her friends and relatives fill her poesiealbum — her autograph book — with inscriptions. Her daughter, Debbie Levy — author of I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark and The Key from Spain: Flory Jagoda and Her Music — used these entries as a springboard for telling the story of the Salzberg family's last year in Germany. It was a year of change and chance, confusion and cruelty. It was a year of goodbyes.

Description

"Chapters open with photo reproductions and translations of friends’ comments from 12-year-old Jutta Salzburg’s album. Mostly platitudes, they sharply contrast with Jutta’s frank view of increasing anti-Semitism.... While abstaining from horrific details, this book clearly presents key historical events, and more importantly, their direct impact on a perceptive girl." — Publishers Weekly
