Based on the gripping real-life story of the author, this poignant, suspenseful middle-grade novel has been a favorite for over forty years. Perfect for Holocaust Remembrance Month. Anna is not sure who Hitler is, but she sees his face on posters all over Berlin. Then one morning, Anna and her brother awake to find her father gone! Her mother explains that their father has had to leave and soon they will secretly join him. Anna just doesn’t understand. Why do their parents keep insisting that Germany is no longer safe for Jews like them? Because of Hitler, Anna must leave everything behind.
Judith Kerr (1923-2019) escaped from Hitler’s Germany with her family and eventually settled in England. She worked as an artist and BBC television scriptwriter before becoming a full-time author and illustrator of children’s books, including When Willy Went to the Wedding, When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, and the best-selling The Tiger Who Came to Tea.
