Goodbye to BerlinA.J. Hall
Goodbye to Berlin is one in a series of LoPiverse books. You might like to refer to their suggested reading order, chronology & series information.
It is a short story set in 1934 that depicts a small incident in the career of Draco Malfoy’s Great-grandmother.
In a Berlin Cabaret a Veela showgirl dances before a crowd of hard-eyed, lecherous wizards, Muggle thrill-seekers and cold, shadowy spies for the omnipresent Authorities, and feels beneath her feet the leaf-mould of the immemorial forests. Gelert Grindelwald, meanwhile, is mobilising hostility against all non-human Magical beings.
Warnings: The author chooses not to warn.
Advisory: This work is set in Berlin 1934 and, accordingly, the characters’ opinions on race, eugenics, the role of women and cross-dressing were-jaguars should not to be assumed to be those of the author.
The original central cover image is a photograph from a flickr feed by Len Treeman (nyctreeman) which is sadly no longer available. It is of Mariette Poplavska, from a 1934 German Kabaret Vaudeville Album. We believe it is out of copyright and have asked the flickr stream owner to confirm this. Sadly they have not been able to reply at the time of going to press, but as they permit others to use photos from this stream, we hope our not-for-profit use will also be acceptable. The fonts used in this book are from the Source Serif Pro font family by Frank Grießhammer.

As usual, Russ from shoes for industry designed the book cover, produced the books and compiled the on-line work.
