9780007274772: When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit (Essential Modern Classics)

This semi-autobiographical and unforgettable story, of a Jewish family fleeing from Germany before the start of the Second World War, now reissued with its original cover illustration in this very special edition.

Michael Morpurgo called When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit: “The most life-enhancing book you could ever wish to read.”

This internationally acclaimed story of one Jewish family’s flight from Hitler’s Germany has become a much-loved classic, and has been in print since its debut 45 years ago.

Suppose your country began to change. Suppose that without your noticing, it became dangerous for some people to live in Germany any longer. Suppose you found, to your complete surprise, that your own father was one of those people.

That is what happened to Anna in 1933. She was nine years old when it began, too busy to take much notice of political posters, but out of them glared the face of Adolf Hitler, the man who would soon change the whole of Europe – starting with her own small life.

One day, Anna’s father was missing. Then she herself and her brother Max were being rushed by their mother, in alarming secrecy, away from everything they knew – home and schoolmates and well-loved toys – right out of Germany...

Review:

“A compassionate introduction to the whole subject of World War II” – Books for your Children

“An extremely exciting adventure story.” – Daily Express

“A charming and touching book, often very funny” – Daily Mail

“Exact, intelligent and unsentimental.” – Sunday Telegraph

From the Back Cover:

Anna is too busy with schoolwork and tobogganing to listen to the talk of Hitler. But one day she and her brother are rushed out of Germany in alarming secrecy, away from everything they know. Their father is wanted by the Nazis - dead or alive. This is the start of a huge adventure, sometimes frightening, very often funny, and always, always exciting.

Judith Kerr was born in Berlin and left Germany in 1933 to escape the Nazis. Her novels are based on her own experience.
