My teacher read this to our class when I was about 10 and the name stuck with me along with a memory of waiting impatiently for the next installment each day. Finally when trying to think of a different book to read to my own kids I asked a bookseller if they knew a book of that name (not having a clue who had written it). My two boys were absolutely riveted although rather bemused when I sobbed through the more emotional bits (nine and seven year old boys may be slightly lacking in soul!) It is [...]
What a beautiful story! When I started reading the book I expected another sorrowful account of the worst time in history, but in the end I closed the book with a smile on my face and the thought that everybody should read this book to be encouraged to deal with change in a new way. (Me included!)Anna tells the story the odyssey her family is forced to undertake in 1933, when Hitler grasps power in Germany and her family has to leave Berlin in a hurry - being Jewish and politically active agains [...]
WHEN HITLER STOLE PINK RABBIT is semi-autobiographical as it is based on the true life story of author Judith Kerr. Her family fled Germany just before Hitler came to power because her father was a well-known writer, and had been openly criticizing the Nazis. Anna is 9 when the story opens and she first learns she is a Jew. She hadn’t realised she was one as her family didn’t follow any of the customs or worship as Jews. One day her father disappears he has been told he is a wanted man by th [...]
-3.5-"Algunas cosas habían sido difíciles, pero siempre había sido interesante, y a menudo divertido: y mamá y papá y Max y ella casi siempre habían estado juntos. Mientras estuvieran juntos, no podría tener nunca una infancia difícil."Es curioso ver un hecho histórico a través de los ojos de un niño inocente.
When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit is a book for kids and teenagers. I know that many friends of mine had to read it in school but for some reason, I never had to. Nevertheless, I always thought that it is an important novel that I should have read. Thus, last year, I bought it but then forgot about it again. Last week, when I was in bed sick with the flu, I was going through the books in my shelf I have not read yet and there it was and grabbed my attention. I started reading it in the morning and r [...]
I've always been quite keen on childrens books about the second world war. There's a kind of simplicity in the way they cover it, that always makes it feel more real to me.Carrie's War, Goodnight Mister Tom, The Kingdom by the Sea, The Machine Gunners, Blitzedhave all at some point or other been one of my favourite booksI'd been looking for this book for quite a while, and chanced upon it a while ago.It was a sweet book, with the main difference being that it didn't dive as deeply into the War a [...]
II. Dünya Savaşı'na dair -gerçekten- farklı bir bakış açısı arayanlar için ideal bir kitap. Savaşı arkaplana alarak kültürel çatışmaları ve mülteciliğin enteresan yanlarını ele alıyor. Hakiki olaylardan esinleniyor olması da cabası.
This book is aimed at pre-teens / early secondary school level, but I thoroughly enjoyed it, and possibly empathised more with the adults, particularly the mother, than I might have done if I'd read it as a child.This is one of those stories rarely told about the period preceding WWII; the everyday difficulties of a Jewish family who left Germany before Hitler came to power. Anna and Max's parents shielded them from the fear of what they suspected was going to happen, so even the fact that their [...]
This book is probably best aimed at the 9-12 age reader, and yet -- like all well-written books -- it will appeal to many older readers. It is Judith Kerr's memoir of being a German/Jewish refugee as a child, and it is both fascinating and poignant. Although the author sticks to facts and memories, as much as possible, the book is presented as fiction -- she distances herself with the third-person point-of-view, and by referring to herself as "Anna" (which actually was one of her names, as she e [...]
This book is one of those that feel somehow effortless, as if they were just waiting to be written. Kerr's fictionalised story of her childhood is, and deserves to be, one of those eternal classics of children's literature. Anna (Judith) is growing up in Germany. She is Jewish, and her father is a famous writer. Following the rise of Nazism, and the climate becoming increasingly fragile in Germany, her parents make the decision to leave. This book follows Anna throughout the first part of her jo [...]
No debemos dejarnos engañar por el título y la ambientación; no estamos ante una narración sobre la Segunda Guerra Mundial al uso. Esta es la historia de Anna y de las aventuras que vive cuando, junto con su familia, sale de su Alemania natal tras la subida de Hitler al poder para ir a vivir a Suiza, luego a Francia y finalmente a Inglaterra. Se encontrará con los problemas típicos de su edad y enfrentará otros más serios con el mayor ánimo, como la necesidad de aprender un nuevo idioma [...]
Muito mais do que uma história sobre a Segunda Guerra Mundial, esta é, acima de tudo, a história de uma família de refugiados. Aliás, o regresso deste livro há muito esgotado em Portugal, não poderia apanhar os leitores dotado de tanta actualidade. Como o faz lembrar – e muito bem – Carla Maia de Almeida no prefácio, estamos a braços com a maior vaga de refugiados desde o tempo da Segunda Guerra Mundial. É pois tempo de reflectir, e este livro é um excelente ponto de partida.Uma h [...]
One of the favourite books of my childhood. I used to reread this obsessively, though it's been a long time since I last read it. But I found it a very touching and captivating story of how a child experienced having to flee from country to country after Hitler rose to power in Germany and then also began to overpower other countries. It didn't encumber the storytelling with the sort of historical detail that would have been tiresome to a child, but still gave me a vivid image of what it was lik [...]
A minha opinião em vídeo: youtube/watch?v=1JFiKQue livro tão bonito! Adorei a versão da Anna, uma criança que se torna numa refugiada, pois por ser judia, tem de sair do seu país
Ein wirklich gutes Buch für das frühe Jugendalter über die Zeit des Nationalsozialismus. Anna und ihr Bruder Max müssen mit Mutter und Vater ihr gemütliches heim in Berlin verlassen. Ihr Vater, ein Regime kritischer Journalist und zudem Jude ist in Gefahr. Sie lassen sich zuerst in Zürich nieder und siedeln später nach Paris um.Das Buch ist aus Annas Sicht geschrieben, die selbst schriftstellerische Ambitionen hat.
I still love this as much as ever.
First published in 1971, I have chosen Judith Kerr’s children’s classic When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit to read for the fourth week of the German Literature Month challenge. Kerr was born in Berlin in 1923. Her family chose to flee Germany just before the Nazis came to power because her father, Alfred Kerr, a well-known writer, had openly criticized this regime. When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit is Kerr’s autobiographical novel about their flight.The book begins just before the March 1933 electi [...]
I have been meaning to read this since I was 12 in 1971 when it first came out and finally have gotten around to it. I'm glad I did. This is the story of a nonreligious family of cultural Jews who were smart enough to get out of Berlin right at the time of Hitler's election. The father, a famous journalist and Nazi critic, got word that if Hitler was elected the Nazis were going to take his passport so he slipped out of the country to Prague and then to Switzerland a short time before the electi [...]
Why can’t we stay in Germany? Will we ever come back? Where will we live? All those questions run through Anna’s mind. It’s 1933, and pictures of Hitler are everywhere. When he rises to power, Anna and her family are forced to leave their home behind. It is no longer safe for Jews to live in Germany. Fearing for their safety, Anna’s family move to 3 different countries in the course of a few short years. Anna must learn new languages and customs and make new friends. Each time she is fin [...]
This book is about a young girl and her family who move from Germany because they fear Hitler would soon be elected. The story is told from a young girl named Anna’s point of view. It starts off with just her average life; she goes to school, eats dinner with her family, and goes to bed. Her dad decides to move the family, because he is worried that if Hitler is elected that he would take his job away. At the time her dad is a journalist. They end up moving all around Europe.I didn't enjoy rea [...]
Bajo este curioso título se esconde uno de los libros para pequeños lectores que más éxito ha cosechado y que más ha contribuido a acercar a los niños a la realidad siniestra que se esconde bajo el panorama que llevó a la Segunda Guerra Mundial.Anna es una niña de 9 años de ascendencia judía que vive con su familia en Berlín. Su padre, un escritor muy crítico con Hitler, se verá en problemas serios cuando los nazis ganen las elecciones, y para proteger a su familia se llevará a los [...]
Such a bad book. It was so boring When I first saw this book, I bought it. When I read it, I realized, I wasted my money. This book is such a waste of your time. The title sounds interesting but when you read it you would want to put down your book at your 4th - 5th chapter. I read the whole book anyways because I didnt want to lose my money.
My mother read this to me as a child and the title and general idea of what it was about has bounced around in my head since then. I finally decided to pick it up again and read it(which felt like for the first time since I hadn't retained any details, just a feeling that I liked it).Based on the author and her experiences, this book provides a unique insight to WWII from a child's perspective.It's easy to let Anna's voice of adventure and naivety sway you into thinking that what is going on at [...]
What i loved most about this book was that nothing really went wrong. Usually in books like these something goes terribly wrong and they all get caught and it's upsetting to read. I also loved that Anna (who was a child) wasn't down played in her intelligence or understanding of the situation which i thought was very realistic. in fact, the whole thing was realistic probably because it's a true story. Absolutely brilliant lovely little book reminding us that there were people who successfully [...]
an incredible book but the ending was very brief
Si hay alguien que quiera hacer caso a mis recomendaciones, por favor, por favor, por favor que elija este libro.
having randomly picked up this book in registration at school, expecting it not to be great, after all it was in an english classroom and hadn't been studied at my school since 1995. i was very plesantly suprised to find that i very soon became addicted to this delightful story. instead of egarly waiting for my friends to come to regi so i could talk to them, i found my self cursing when they walked in the door, as it meant i had to stop reading. i'm a person that adores reading, however recentl [...]
Judith Kerr's memoirs as a refugee from Nazi Germany are an important legacy. The hairsbreadth that separated Hitler from 'stealing pink rabbit' and their very lives is shocking and remarkable. The Pink Rabbit is her childhood and just as its eyes and fallen off and been sewn back on again, Anna learns to see things differently. It is a simply written and true story of a young girl growing up at a time when Hitler came to power, forcing her father, a well-known, humorous and very outspoken write [...]
