Teaser Tuesdays: When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit by Judith Kerr (Nov 17)

Okay, so for those of you who are new to this meme, here's how it works:

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My current read is When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit by Judith Kerr.

Nine-year-old Anna was too busy with schoolwork and friends in 1933 to take much notice of Adolf Hitler's rise to power in her native Germany. But when her father is suddenly, unaccountably missing, and her family flees Berlin in secrecy, Anna is forced to learn the skills needed to be a refugee and finds she's much more resilient than she thought.
(191 pages)

Here's this week's teaser, from page 72 (the family is living in Switzerland, and Anna's mother just found out why the visiting couple from Germany won't let their children play with Anna and Max):
Trying to speak quietly made Mama angrier than ever and she could hardly get the words out.
"They're Nazis," she said at last. "They've forbidden their children to play with ours because our children are Jewish!" 
Let me know what you think of the book, and check back on Friday for my review!
