Judith was born on 14 June 1923 in Berlin but escaped from Hitler’s Germany with her parents and brother in 1933 when she was nine years old. Her father was a drama critic and a distinguished writer whose books were burned by the Nazis. Having passed through Switzerland and France the family arrived in England in 1936. Judith worked as a television scriptwriter, author and illustrator of children’s books.
