Judith Kerr

One day Anna comes home from school and her mom tells her that they are moving to Switzerland. Anna's mom doesn't tell her why they are going, all she says that her dad is there already and will meet them there Once they get there they stay for a few weeks then they move to France and then finally end up in England. They question is why did they move to these places and why is there dad so worried about being a Jew? What does a pink rabbit have to do with anything? Find out in When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit!


The theme is never giving up. When Anna is going to new schools and trying to learn new customs it's hard, also her parents aren't telling her anything about why they are moving all the time. Anna handles it pretty well but it isn't always easy. Also the lesson of the story was to do what is right even if it means you have to risk something.
