The children’s novel When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, by Judith Kerr, is the first in a trilogy based on the author’s experience during WWII. Perennials PERENNIALS constant friends A selection of novels, memoirs and more by some of our favourite authors. Was mir persönlich zum Schluss fehlte, sind Beschreibungen zu früheren, verbundenen und helfenden, Personen. out of 5 stars Terrific at capturing the fear, the despair, the drama of living through the blitz and charting what happened thereafter.

La prose de Judith Kerr est adressée à tous les âges ainsi le premier volume de cette trilogie devrait plaire des enfants, adolescents et adultes et le deuxième "Bombs on aunt Dainty" (Ici "Londres" en Français) plutôt aux adolescents et adults. That first book, When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, was definitely written for children close to 9 or 10 as a minimum age, though its upper age readership widens to include the not so young adult as well as the YA market, as the writing itself, and the viewpoint, though accessible, is deep enough to be experienced and enjoyed at whatever level of understanding the reader possesses.Anna passes absolutely as an English born and bred young women - until of course she encounters officialdom and background checks. The story is told from the perspective of Anna, the main character, through a series of very funny events, whether it's escaping on the midnight train to Switzerland, or learning French from scratch. Judith Kerr has taken a very serious theme and found a way to explain things Anna faced in entertainment and nice to read way. A touching duo of simple but affecting autobiographical novels describing the disrupted childhood and coming of age of adaptable Jewish German refugee girl Anna tracing her journey from a comfortable life in Berlin via Switzerland and Paris to London in the Blitz.

As a kid I thought this was the most awfully titled book on our shelf (being young and ignorant and not understanding the symbolism).

But when her father is suddenly, unaccountably missing, and her family flees Berlin in secrecy, Anna is forced to learn the skills needed to be a refugee and finds she's much more resilient than she thought. Sie sind fesselnd geschrieben, kunstvoll und in vielen tiefen Nuancen durchdacht, auch wenn der Schreibstil sehr einfach ist. I like this scene because it is funny and it also shows that many people didn't take Hitler as a really serious threat before he was in power.

However, I enjoyed this book very much and I think my fellow book-club members have enjoyed this as well. I read the second story; Bombs on Aunt Dainty - very touching and interesting memories of refugee life in WW2 England from the point of view of an adolescent girl.

She was under the impression that if he were captured, her father would have coins thrown on his head, so many that the Nazis would eventually suffocate him.

A fantastic insight into what life was like before and during the Second World War from the perspective of young girl Anna (Judith Kerr) and her Jewish family as they flee Berlin just as Hitler rises to power, moving to Switzerland, Paris and finally London.

This one covers the protagonists teen/young adult period so has some elements with relationship themes( in the 40s and 50s) which made my 10yo a bit squirmy but overall she enjoyed very much reading with mum and dad. They also learn the Nazis appeared at their Berlin residence to confiscate their passports and bar them from leaving the country.

The children hear that their father has sought refuge in Prague, Austria, along with Anna's older brother Max. I learned a lot about the life of a refugee, from the child's eye viewpoint despite being long past childhood.When there was music on the radio in the lounge it seemed to her unbearably beautiful, and the sight of the dead men’s clothes at work made her unbearably sad. Nine-year-old Anna was too busy with schoolwork and friends in 1933 to take much notice of Adolf Hitler's rise to power in her native Germany.
