When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit

Als Hitler das Rosa Kaninchen stahl

61st TIFF: Greek premiere

Suppose your hometown began to change. Suppose that, without your noticing it, it suddenly became dangerous for some people to live in your country. This is what happened to 9-year-old Anna, in 1933. Anna is not exactly sure who Hitler is. 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 world. From now on Anna experiences life as a refugee, not speaking the language, unaware of customs and traditions, missing her friends and loved ones – including the stuffed bunny she left behind.
