My parents told me to come here. They had to escape from the soldiers!
3. "Who is the dark haired one?"
Quick! Take off your Star of David necklace!
4. "Who is the dark haired one?"
Ellen and Rosemarie were racing while walking home from school. Kirsti didn't want to run, and so she lagged behind. But, when they got to the corner, they ran into two soldiers looking for Jewish people. They asked the girls questions, and they were very scared, for they had never seen a soldier.
Look at this picture! This is my daughter! See the dark hair?
Who is the dark haired girl? The rest of you are blond!
Ellen has to live with Rosemarie because the Nazi's were trying to find Jewish people to put in concentration camps. In order to be safe, she had to hide in someone else's home.
5. "The house by the sea"
When Ellen and Rosemarie hear soldiers searching her house for Ellen, Rosemarie quickly rips off Ellen's necklace. They pretend Ellen is their daughter. Their real daughter died in an accident. But, the soldiers didn't know that she died, so Ellen should be safe.
6. Safe at last
Ellen! We missed you!
I'm so glad you are safe!
When the Nazi comes into their room, Rosemarie hides the necklace in her hand. When the Nazi soldier asked why Ellen was dark haired, Rosemarie's father explained that Ellen was the other (dead) daughter, pretending that she was still alive, and that she had dark hair. He proved it with a baby picture. So, Ellen was safe.
In order to get away from the Nazis, they take a "vacation" to their Uncle Henrik. They take the train, where two Nazis get on and inspect them. Kirsti almost blows their cover. Here they were safe, but Rosemarie runs into three Nazi's. Ellen is safe and hides in Uncle Henrik's fishing boat.
At Uncle Henrik's house, Ellen and her parents are reunited and she is safe. Uncle Henrik also hid them in his fishing boat. Ellen is happy and relieved that she is free.
