Judith Kerr’s birthplace was Berlin but she left Germany with her parents and her brother, Michael Kerr, in 1933, soon after the Nazis first came to power. They were forced to leave as her father, noted drama critic, journalist and screenwriter Alfred Kerr, had criticised  the Nazis where everyone could see.
