When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit Synopsis

This internationally acclaimed story of one Jewish family’s flight from Hitler’s Germany has become a much-loved classic, and this special edition hardback has been published to celebrate the 90th birthday of Judith Kerr. It features reproductions of the original cover and pages from its first printing in 1971, illustrated by the author.

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…
