Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Judith Kerr. Putnam/PaperStar, $4.95 ISBN 0-698-11589-9. A Jewish girl and her family escape Berlin just before Hitler gains power and spend the next few years as refugees in Switzerland, France and England. Ages 8-12. (Nov.)
Children's Literature - Armin Brott
Nine-year-old Anna and her family were among the lucky ones, Jews who fled their Berlin home just before Hitler came to power in 1933. Anna doesn't completely understand why they needed to leave Germany, but we, the readers, do. And that's what makes this autobiographical novel so interesting. We follow Anna, her brother, and her father as they travel through Europe, living as refugees, staying a few steps ahead of the Nazis. Although When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit avoids most of the details of the actual Holocaust, it provides young readers with a gentle, yet important, introduction to a horrible chapter in world history. 1997 (orig.

    best book i ever read

    This is the best books I have ever read. The story it tells enthralls the reader even though it is not action packed. It is very interesting to read the story of a Jewish German girl and her family having to move across Europe at the beginning of Hitler's reign.

    Every book you read becomes a part of you, but it is rare treasures like 'When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit' that really stays with you. Anna is a character who is ignorant at times, but she is truly someone to delight in. The character of Onkel Julius is too optimistic, claiming that Hitler's reign will be over before long. Anna's father is a famous author, and she wants nothing more than to become famous herself. As a refugee, she travels from Berlin to Switzerland to Paris and finally to England, where her father is finally able to earn a living through all the turmoil. Follow her encounters with Nazi mothers, French lessons, and a nearly deaf great-aunt. You can't miss it!

    Superb book!

    A librarian recommended this book to me when I was in 5th grade. Now, 35 years later, it is still one of my favorite children's books. I plan to use it with my class to introduce historical fiction.

    A nine year old girl named Anna lives in Germany at a time when Hitler is elected to be president. Her family needs to move to Switzerland for their safety, and incounters several obsacles in her way. If you are a history lover, or someone who just loves to read a great book, I strongly suggest When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, by Judith Kerr.

    Great Book

    I loved the book. It was an amazing story about family and I thought that because when Onkel Julius died even I was sad. It was very very moving.

    Entertaining

    I think this book is very good and entertaining but I do not like how at the end it just says,"They closed the door and the taxi started,".Other than that it was a great book.

    Great and Spectacular

    When I read this book I absolutely adored it because it was historical fiction, based on the author's fathers life, and Anna loved traveling to different places just like me. Sarah

    great childrens book

    This has always been one of my favorite books on the Holocaust. Even now at 22 years old, i still remember this book as one of my favorite books on the horrors of the Holocaust. May we never forget the Holocaust or its victims, both the living and the dead.

    GREAT BOOK!!!

    This is such a great book. Even though I'm reading it for school, I really feel like I was Anna, living through these harsh times. I totally recommend this book to you, too because not only do you learn interesting history from the point of view of a 9 year old, but you learn to respect the luckiness that we have to live in this kind of world now.
