"Number the Stars" is about a family that works together to save their friends from the German soldiers during WWII. When all Jews were taken and were abused.
Reminds me of my little girl.
Stop that don't touch my hair!
Oh No! the soldiers scare me.
Halt! Why are you running?
Papa did say we can stay up a giggle and talk all night.
We'll be sisters!!
Where are you going?!!
We are going to Gilleleje to visit my brother.
The girls were running then stopped by the soldiers on the street.
Aunt Birte died from thyphous.
Oh my dear aunt - Birte died. It is our custom to sit with the dead.
Why is the casket closed??
Why are there so many people gathered around here?
Ellan's parents got news that the soldiers are coming to raid the apartment for Jews. So Ellan stayed with the Johanson's while her parents went into hiding.
Only you two.
Have you seen anyone through here?
Mrs. Johanson takes the girls to visit her brother. She pretends that Ellan is her daughter. She takes Ellan to a safe place on her brother's farm.
You forgot your lunch uncle Henrik
Oh! you saved the day and you were very brave.
Mrs. Johanson and uncle Henrik arranged a fake funeral so that when the soldiers ask questions they would be safe. After the funeral, they helped Ellan and her parents sneak out to uncle Henrik's boat.
Annemarie had to run through the woods to deliver a package to her uncle Henrik on his boat.
Annemarie delivered the package and saved her friend's life. Uncle Henrik took the families to Sweden where they were safe from the soldiers.
