LEIPZIG - Frauke and Peter are confused. On Monday, new coronavirus regulations are taking effect in the German state of Saxony, and they aren’t exactly sure what that means for their little book store. It will remain open, but from now on they may have to politely turn away unvaccinated customers.
“In the spring, bookshops were like shops for food. And I hope this will apply to ours also. We don’t know, we don’t know,” Frauke tells Haaretz, in a mixture of English and German.
