The Hirschfield International Film Series presents this 2019 film from Oscar winner Caroline Link (All About MeNowhere in Africa), who adapted Judith Kerr’s bestselling book for the screen.

Suppose your country began to change. Suppose that without your noticing it became dangerous for some people to live in your country. Suppose you found, to your complete surprise, that your own father was one of those people. That is what happens to Anna in 1933. Anna is not sure who Hitler is. She is nine years old when everything begins, too busy to take much notice of his face on posters all over Berlin. But when her own father goes missing one day, she comes to realize that the man on the posters is about to change the whole of Europe—starting with her own small life. Anna and her family hastily flee Germany, leaving even her favorite stuffed pink rabbit behind. A true story about parting, family cohesion, and optimism.
