Judith Kerr is one of these authors.
Perhaps that was designed intentionally by the author as well. Kerr was born in Berlin but left Germany with her parents and her brother, Michael, in Judith Kerr is a German-born British writer and illustrator who has created both enduring picture books such as the Mog series and The Tiger Who Came To Tea and acclaimed novels for older children such as the autobiographical When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit which give a child’s-eye view of the Second World War.
The environment of London during the bombing raids is also credibly and atmospherically recreated.
Anna’s not running anymore and now she’s trying to find herself. Bombs on Aunt Dainty picks up several years after Pink Rabbit.
If Hitler invades, can she and her beloved refugee family possibly survive? I am on a course now to read all her books. She subsequently became a naturalised British citizen. He packs law books instead of clothes, as his exams are in two weeks, and he either thinks he won’t be detained long or he doesn’t want to fall behind on his studying.

Other books in the series. My favorite characters in this installment were Max and Cousin Otto. If you do not know Kerr’s work, her elegant, beautiful, and heartfelt work, then now is the time to become acquainted. Bombs on Aunt Dainty follows a teenager called Anna. Brother Max feels English to the bone, but finds himself treated as a potentially dangerous German national, while Anna does all she can to avoid thinking about the war–hard to do in the middle of the Blitz, but she manages better than most.
Kerr pinpoints what sort of things matter to a teenage girl and incorporates them in her story.
However, despite the grim backdrop of war, there are judtih of uplifting moments too. That is the British understatement. I’m always amazed at the strength and courage the people who lived through the war exhibited, and yet, those who write, seem unaware of how amazing they really are.
