Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 04/2018

This summer saw the Oscar®-winning writer-director Caroline Link embarking on her latest feature, WHEN HITLER STOLE PINK RABBIT, based on British writer Judith Kerr's semi-autobiographical story about a young Jewish girl and her family escaping the Nazis in 1933 by travelling to Switzerland and Paris before finally arriving and settling in England in 1936.

Newcomers Riva Krymalowski and Marinus Hohmann appear alongside European Shooting Star Carla Juri and Oliver Masucci in the adaptation of the award-winning novel which is often used in German and British schools as a way of introducing pupils to a dark chapter in German history and life as a refugee.
