Judith Kerr exhibition comes to the Jewish Museum
An exhibition of Judith Kerr’s work came to the Jewish Museum on 29 June 2015 and will be there until 14 October 2015.
The exhibits, on loan from the the children’s literature museum in Newcastle Seven Stories. You are invited to have tea with a Tiger over 6ft tall, curl up in Mog’s basket with one of Judith Kerr’s classic picture books, and discover the childhood drawings of her childhood in Germany and dramatic escape from Hitler’s Germany through Switzerland, France and eventually to Britain.
The exhibition celebrates the picture books still so loved by children around the world today, The Tiger who Came to Tea, and the Mog series. It also explores her childhood and schooling in Germany as well as the background to When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, featuring drawings Judith made as a child refugee.
Where to find it
You can reach the Jewish Museum through Regents Park (it is between the North East corner of Regents Park and Camden Town tube station – and a short walk from each), but you do need to book tickets!
If you want a venue for a party, the Museum also hosts Judith Kerr-themed Lunch or Tea parties in the Museum’s special party room, with a museum trail around the exhibition, and arts and crafts activities at £15 per child.
