Partly autobiographical, this is first of the internationally acclaimed trilogy by Judith Kerr telling the unforgettable story of a Jewish family fleeing from Germany at the start of the Second World WarSuppose your country began to change. Suppose that without your noticing, it became dangerous for some people to live in Germany any longer. Suppose you found, to your complete surprise, that your own father was one of those people.That is what happened to Anna in 1933. She was nine years old when it began, too busy with her schoolwork and toboganning to take much notice of political posters, but out of them glared the face of Adolf Hitler, the man who would soon change the whole of Europe - starting with her own small life.Anna suddenly found things moving too fast for her to understand. One day, her father was unaccountably missing. Then she herself and her brother Max were being rushed by their mother, in alarming secrecy, away from everything they knew - home and schoolmates and well-loved toys - right out of Germany.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What A Story, What A Journey Imagine you live in Germany as a Jew, Two weeks before Adolf Hitler gets elected. You get a phone call From a police officer, who tells you that if Hitler gets elected you may have your passport taken away, by the government and you may want to leave Germany. the only reason why the father in this story gets a phone call from the police officer is because the father is a writer, And police officer tells him that he read some of his books, and enjoyed reading his books. So after phone call the father goes to Prague for a few days ( Not sure why ) Then meets the Family about a week later in Switzerland. While in Switzerland The family, mother, son Max, and daughter Anna live in a Inn just outside Zurich. At one point in the story a German family staying at the inn on vacation would not allow their children to play with their children, because they are Jewish. unfortunately the father can not find work in Switzerland. This is due to the fact that the Swiss are afraid of upsetting the Germans if they hire him. The family moves again, this time to Paris France. After living in France for roughly two years, The father writes a movie script which get accepted by a Hungarian film maker living in London. Here is where story goes from very good, to just good. After getting in cab in London, A cousin of the the mother living in England, gives the cab driver the address of a hotel, to take them to. and the story ends there. I would like to hear what their life in London was like. That was with out question a disappointment. This book is very much worth reading, in spite of this. especially for young kids 10-15 years old. Please note, when I wrote this review I did not know there was a sequel to this book. In this case disregard what I said about the ending of this book.
