Kurzbeschreibung

The true story of the first female serial killer to die in the electric chair. Nicknamed “the Blonde Borgia,” Anna Marie Hahn was a cold-blooded serial killer who preyed on the elderly in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine district in the 1930s. When the State of Ohio strapped its first woman into the electric chair, Hahn gained a place in the annals of crime as the nation’s first female serial killer to be executed in the chair. Told here for the first time in riveting detail is Anna Marie’s gripping story, an almost unbelievable tale of multiple murders, deceit, and greed. Born in Bavaria in 1906, Anna Marie brought shame to her pious family when, as a teenager, she gave birth to an illegitimate son, Oscar. She was shipped off to America in 1929 where she initially lived with elderly relatives in Cincinnati. A year later she married Philip Hahn, a Western Union telegrapher, with whom she bought a new house and opened a delicatessen/bakery.Pressed economically by the Great Depression, the ever-resourceful Anna Marie found other ways to get the money to support her passionate past-time—betting on horses. She tried burning down the house, then the deli, for the insurance; and she tried killing her husband, also for the insurance. Then she took to befriending the neighborhood elderly, latching on to their life savings before feeding them arsenic with deadly results. For weeks her Cincinnati trial for “the greatest mass murder in the history of the country” was a front-page sensation across the nation. A thousand or more curiosity seekers came daily to the courthouse to try to get just a glimpse of her. Nearly 100 witnesses gave damning testimony against her, and the jury’s guilty verdict put her on the path to the electric chair. Finally, after a year, all appeals were exhausted, and Anna Marie, age 32, was executed on December 7, 1938, at the state penitentiary in Columbus. True crime buffs, historians, legal professionals, and others seeking an extraordinary story will find The Goodbye Door a compelling addition to true crime literature.

Synopsis

Nicknamed "the Blonde Borgia," Anna Marie Hahn was a cold-blooded serial killer who preyed on the elderly in Cincinnati's Over-the-Rhine district in the 1930s. When the State of Ohio strapped its first woman into the electric chair, Hahn gained a place in the annals of crime as the nation's first female serial killer to be executed in the chair. Told here for the first time in riveting detail is Anna Marie's gripping story, an almost unbelievable tale of multiple murders, deceit, and greed. Born in Bavaria in 1906, Anna Marie brought shame to her pious family when, as a teenager, she gave birth to an illegitimate son, Oscar. She was shipped off to America in 1929 where she initially lived with elderly relatives in Cincinnati. A year later, she married Philip Hahn, a Western Union telegrapher, with whom she bought a new house and opened a delicatessen/bakery. Pressed economically by the Great Depression, the ever-resourceful, Anna Marie found other ways to get the money to support her passionate pasttime - betting on horses. She tried burning down the house, then the deli, for the insurance; and she tried killing her husband, also for the insurance.

Then, she took to befriending the neighborhood elderly, latching on to their life savings before feeding them arsenic with deadly results. For weeks, her Cincinnati trial for "the greatest mass murder in the history of the country" was a front-page sensation across the nation. A thousand or more curiosity seekers came daily to the court-house to try to get just a glimpse of her. Nearly 100 witnesses gave damning testimony against her, and the jury's guilty verdict put her on the path to the electric chair. Finally, after a year, all appeals were exhausted, and Anna Marie, age 32, was executed on December 7, 1938, at the state penitentiary in Columbus. True crime buffs, historians, legal professionals, and others seeking an extraordinary story will find "The Goodbye Door" a compelling addition to true crime literature.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fascinating True Crime Story! 14. Februar 2007
Von A. Cole - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a fascinating true story about America's first female serial killer to die in the electric chair. The book covers Anna Marie Hahn's life as a favored child in Bavaria, to her descent into crime as a serial killer, and finally to her execution. The book is an easy, but compelling read--I couldn't put it down and read it in less than 2 days! I had the pleasure of meeting the author, Diana Franklin, and discussing the book with her. Diana's thorough research investigating these murders (which took place in the mid- to late-1930s) and the resulting trial and media coverage is clear. She was able to recreate Anna's actions in astounding detail. Anyone who is interested in reading true crime stories should definitely add this book to their list of "must reads"!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A MASTERFUL RECREATION !!! 17. Mai 2007
Von Marlene - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
"The Good-bye Door" is a masterful recreation of a heinous crime that took place almost 80 years ago. The manuscript is so vividly crafted that I felt like a voyeur, watching every move made by this serial killer, Anna Marie Hahn. When she finally was arrested, I was there when police questioned her. When her trial began in a crowded Cincinnati courtroom, I was sitting in the first row. When she stood rigidly before the bar, I felt the judge's pain at having to pronounce the death sentence. And when she went to the electric chair after a year in the Ohio penitentiary, I was swept up by the emotional scene in front of me. Readers will be amazed, as I was, at the author's skill in bringing this story to life. A wonderful book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A SHOCKING PORTRAIL 21. Mai 2007
Von Marlene - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I happened to meet the author, Diana Britt Franklin, at a conference and she was so enthusiastic about her book that I immediately went home and ordered it. I usually read historical fiction and haven't had much interest in books about crime, so I was skeptical. I found the book to be extremely well researched, documented and fascinating. It is not gory or violent in any way. Rather, it is a detailed description and account of a very sick and evil mind and the heinous crimes she committed. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in human nature and the many paths and turns the human mind follows. By the time you finish the book, you feel like you were at the trial yourself. That is quite an achievement for crimes that were committed 70 years ago.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Good-bye Door 29. Januar 2007
Von William Blackburn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
As an avid reader of true crime, I thoroughly enjoyed "The Good-bye Door." How this incredible story, told in such captivating detail by the author, escaped attention all these years is hard to fathom. In its day, it was describled as "the greatest mass murder in the history of the country." Fortunately for history, this author took the time to chronicle Anna Marie Hahn's arrest, trial, incarceration, and execution in Ohio. "The

Good-bye Door" is engrossing from beginning to end. I loved it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fabulous Read! 1. Mai 2007
Von Shanna McQueen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book must have been quite an undertaking for the author as all the primary players in this drama are long dead. However, the story is well researched, very well written, and almost devoid of typos and grammatical errors. (I think I found one.) "The Good-bye Door" tells the story of Anna Marie Hahn, the first female serial killer to die in the electric chair. Anna Marie was a young Bavarian immigrant who came to America partly to escape her past. She settled in a largely German area of Cincinnati and later sent for her young son.

Adept at social relationships (as are many sociopaths), Anna Marie soon ingratiates herself to elderly men in the neighborhood. She bilked them out of whatever money she could and then systematically poisoned them. However, Anna Marie is an enigma. In some cases, she was willing to kill for relatively small amounts of money and the "gain" for her appears to be very little... unless you consider that she may have enjoyed poisening her victims. In the end, at the age of 32, when death was imminent and Anna Marie was forced to reckon with her own demons, she begged pitifully and screamed as she was strapped into Old Sparky.

Oddly, Anna Marie always claimed to love her son, Oscar, who was 12 at the time of her death. She often stated that everything she did was to provide for him. While her son does appear to be perhaps the only person she felt any real affection for, I believe even this love was selfish and tainted by her own vanity and narcissism.

While it is unclear how much Oscar knew of her muderous activities, Anna Marie exhibited no emotion when she had Oscar serve the arsenic-laced food to the victims. Did Oscar ever see her poison the food? Did Oscar ever assist his mother in poisoning the meals she "lovingly" prepared for the elderly men in her care? No one will ever know... but I suspect he knew a great deal more than he was ever willing to say. Certainly, Oscar exhibited problems maintaining appropriate peer relationships and had learned from his mother how to lie with ease. Given that Anna Marie did NOT shield her son from these ammoral activities, nor the grotesque manner in which the victims were forced to suffer and die, it can only be concluded that even the love she claimed to feel for Oscar was shallow and lacking in humility and honesty.

Anna Marie was certainly not raised by abusive parents or forced to live in abject poverty and suffering. If anything, she was probably coddled by her mother and rarely held accountable for her actions. When she did burn the bridges with her remaining family members, she was shunned and ignored. Not one person from her family of origin expressed any sympathy for her plight, and not one family member ever attended her trial. Having suffered the consequences of a tainted relationship with Anna Marie for many years, perhaps they already knew what many others failed to see until it was too late.
