I’ve had to cheat with this one a bit, as I tend not to read much non-fiction. When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit is not strictly speaking an autobiography, but it is based on events from the author’s childhood. I can remember my teacher reading it to the class when I was about nine, and we were all hooked by it. It was sad and funny, and the issue of being a Jew in Germany when Hitler came to power was dealt with in a way that we could all understand despite our young age. It’s one of those books that I have never forgotten.
