Number the stars
Being brave when you're afraid


Summary

Ten-year-old Annemarie Johansen lives with her family in Denmark.

There are soldiers on the streets, and the country is occupied by the Nazis.

There isn't enough to eat, and the world is at war.

Then the Nazis decide to "relocate" the country's Jewish population.

The Danes don't know why their friends and neighbours are being taken away.

They don't know where they are going, either.

But they do know that it is wrong and dangerous and they must help.

Number the stars is a very powerful novel.

During World War 2, the Nazis killed millions of people in Europe.

Many of those people were Jewish.

But in Denmark , almost all of the Jewish population was saved.

Number the stars is a work of fiction ,but it tells the true story of their rescue.

The moving plot is driven by injustice, danger and excitement.

But the book also deals with significant ideas that are much bigger than the story itself.
