Nine-year-old Anna is too busy with school and playing with friends to notice Hitler’s face on posters plastered around Berlin. But when her father, a well-known Jewish journalist, suddenly vanishes, Anna begins to realize that everything is about to change. As Anna and her family set off  on a courageous adventure full of fear and uncertainty, they must navigate unfamiliar lands, and cope with the challenges of being refugees. A gentle and beautifully rendered adaptation of Judith Kerr’s semi-autobiographical bestselling children’s novel by Oscar-winning filmmaker Caroline Link (Nowhere in Africa), When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit provides a moving perspective on the experiences of German Jews who fled before the war.


Pre-recorded conversation with director Caroline Link and Elizabeth von Wagner, German Consulate General Boston, included with purchase of ticket or pass.  


Introduction by Nicole Menzenbach, Consul General of Germany to Boston.
