What's Number the Stars About

Publisher Summary

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.

I read this for the first time in a mother-daughter book club and it’s a phenomenal introduction to the Holocaust, and a beautiful story about friendship. There are enough details to help younger readers understand some of what was going on and convey the seriousness of the situation, but without the more gory details that are important to remember but are more appropriate for an older audience. It’s also a quick read!
