THE OLDIE FIGHTS BACK AGAINST HITLER

Blog | Jan 30, 2019


Judith Kerr, the 95-year-old children’s author, won the Oldie’s Tigress We’d Like to Have to Tea award for a lifetime’s work that includes the autobiographical novel When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, about a girl escaping Nazi Germany. Receiving the prize, Kerr remarked: “That’s one in the eye for Hitler, isn’t it?”

As Gyles Brandreth said, “That’s not the sort of thing you hear at any other award ceremonies. Wonderful."
