Julia  Kröhn - Riviera: The Road to Freedom


The Riviera's glorious colours, the chaos of war, and two young women fighting for the future

Europe, 1938. The Nazis have declared a longing for Italy as an 'ur-German' urge, and the country continues to be a popular holiday destination. Salome uses the trips to Rome organised by her father's travel agency to help Jewish families flee Germany.

When their presence in Italy is no longer tolerated by Mussolini, she escapes with them across the Mediterranean and into France. During one of her daring schemes she bumps into Félix, and all the old feelings come flooding back. When war breaks out and the German army invades France, the Jewish émigrés are in grave danger – and Salome and Félix have to choose between love and resistance …

"Julia Kröhn is inspired by the impressive feats of those self-confident women, who, in times far more difficult than ours, [...] lived life their way."
