    Number the Stars

    by Lowry, Lois

    As the German troops begin their campaign to "relocate" all the Jews of Denmark, 10-year-old Annemarie Johansens's family takes in Annemarie's best friend, Ellen Rosen, and pretend she is part of the family.

    Through Annemarie's eyes, we watch as the Danish Resistance smuggle almost the entire Jewish population, nearly seven thousand people, across the sea to Sweden. A tale of an entire nation's heroism that reminds us there was pride and human decency in the world even during a time of terror and war.

    With a new introduction by the author.

About This Book

Ten-year-old Annemarie and her best friend Ellen often think of life before the war.  It's now 1943, and their life is filled with school, food shortages, and the Nazi soldiers marching through town.  When the Jews are "relocated," Ellen moves in with Annemarie's family and pretends to be one of them, yet her life is still in danger.
