When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit
Presented with Holocaust Museum Houston
Directed by Caroline Link
Germany/Switzerland, 2019, 119 minutes

It’s not often you find a film that can discuss the Holocaust while also remaining child-friendly. Adapted from a novel written by Judith Kerr, this film follows nine year old Anna and her family as they flee Zurich to avoid the Nazis. Exploring themes like the loss of identity, as well material objects—Anna’s pink rabbit, for example—the film remains packed with powerful, but digestible moments that tug at your heartstrings and make this story a crowd favorite wherever it screens.
