When WHEN HITLER STOLE PINK RABBIT is written from the third-person point of view. Anna is the main character, however. The point of view is therefore not omniscient. It only knows what Anna herself knows with a few exceptions, like discrete knowledge of dates and times and a bit about the doings of her father and mother. One of the points of WHEN HITLER STOLE PINK RABBIT is to describe the events of the rise of the Nazi Regime and its consequences through the eyes of a child. And in this way, the book achieves its purpose. Often complex events are referenced, events the reader will recognize (like the election of 1933) but the book will provide relatively little explanation. Instead, the events are left largely unexplained in order to communicate to the reader the inability of a child to comprehend the full significance of events.
