'Number the Stars' By Lois Lowry

In excellent condition, all pages clean.

Lois Lowry’s Newbery Award–winning classic.

As the German troops begin their campaign to “relocate” all the Jews of Denmark, Annemarie Johansen’s family takes in Annemarie’s best friend, Ellen Rosen, and conceals her as part of the family.

Through the eyes of ten-year-old Annemarie, we watch as the Danish Resistance smuggles almost the entire Jewish population of Denmark, nearly seven thousand people, across the sea to Sweden.

The heroism of an entire nation reminds us that there was pride and human decency in the world even during a time of terror and war.

"In Nazi-occupied Denmark, ten-year-old Annemarie Johansen is called upon for a selfless act of bravery to help save her best friend from a terrible fate.Winner of the Newbery Medal,
"They plan to arrest all the Danish Jews. They plan to take them away. And we have been told that they may come tonight.”
It is 1943 and life in Copenhagen is becoming complicated for Annemarie. There are food shortages and curfews, and soldiers on every corner.But it is even worse for her Jewish best friend, Ellen, as the Nazis continue their brutal campaign.
With Ellen's life in danger, Annemarie must summon all her courage to help stage a daring escape.Inspired by true events of the Second World War, this gripping novel brings the past vividly to life for today's readers." Please click here to ask a question
