Annemarie Johansen and her best friend Ellen Rosen are introduced to us. Annemarie and Ellen both in Copenhagen during the Nazi occupation.
The Nazis had started to relocate Jews. The Nazi soldiers would take them to concentration camps. There the Jews could have been killed.
Annemarie and her family had a plan to ensure the Rosens were safe. The plan had involved a ''Great-Aunt Birte''. It had also involved Uncle Henrik going on ''trips''.
Annemarie was brave enough to take the package that contains the handkerchief. While Annemarie was in the woods she had ran into Nazi soldiers. The Nazi soldiers had made fun Annemarie and
Uncle Henrik hides the Rosens in his boat. After Annemarie had taken the package Nazi soldiers and dogs had searched the boat. Since Uncle Henrik had the handkerchief the dogs could not detect any people.
Annemarie takes out Ellen's Star of David necklace. Although Annemarie misses Ellen Annemarie is happy Ellen is safe and free.
