M3M Movie Series Presents “When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit”

Sponsored by Eileen & Justin Kawaler and Susan Server & Sheldon Davidson

When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit is an adaptation of British author Judith Kerr’s novel based on her childhood memories. The story of a Jewish family’s escape from 1933 Berlin to Europe tackles prejudice, exile, displacement and adaptation, as told from the perspective of the author’s alter ego, nine year-old Anna Kemper. Anna is too busy with schoolwork and friends to notice Hitler’s face glaring from posters plastered all over 1933 Berlin. But when her father—based on the prominent theater critic Alfred Kerr—suddenly vanishes, the family is secretly hurried out of Germany. Anna begins to understand life will never be the same as she and her family navigate unfamiliar lands and cope with the challenges of being refugees.

She, a homeless teenage massage-parlor worker on the run, is a Holocaust denier. The teen is angry, but stunningly naïve, trusting no one. The old man (Ed Asner) trusts only a few. She tells him she hates Jews – he asks if she needs a place to stay.
