My European Faces: Judith Kerr, beloved children’s books author, is Jewish, German, French, British and European

Judith Kerr as a little girl, when Hitler stole her pink rabbit

Judith Kerr gave us the book “When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit” — the story of a refugee child during WWII — among many other beloved children’s books. The sanguine writer, depicted here as a seven-year old, was born in 1923. When her father was asked, if he would not want to move back to France after the war, where the food was better, and his language skills superior, he purportedly replied: “Only if I can take all of the wonderful British people, that helped us so much, with me.” She is German, French, British and European.
