Everything you need to know about Judith Kerr
Author Judith Kerr's life story could fill the pages of many books. Originally born in Berlin as to an influential German-Jewish theatre critic, she and her family escaped Germany in 1933 just before the Nazis came to power after her father openly criticised the party. Her father's books were burned by the Nazis after the family fled the country, first to Switzerland and then to France, before arriving in Britain where Judith Kerr has lived ever since.
