Suppose your country began to change, suddenly becoming too dangerous for some to live in it. Suppose your father was one of them. That is what happens to Anna in 1933. She is not sure who Hitler is. At nine years old, to her, he’s simply a face on the posters all over Berlin. When her father goes missing, Anna realizes that the man on the posters is about to change everything, starting with her own small life. She and her family hastily flee Germany, leaving her favorite stuffed pink rabbit behind. From now on, she encounters life in exile and all the problems that come with that. Yet Anna grows up, finds new friends and learns to take responsibility. So when her family has to move away yet again, she is certain she can do anything.
