Inge, I will take the first group. Exactly twenty minutes later you will take the Rosen's to Henrik's boat, he will be waiting there.
In Number the Stars the two main characters that we are introduced to are, best friends Annemarie Johanson and Ellen Rosen. We also meet Kirsti Johanson. Annemarie's younger sister. They live in Cpenhagen in 1943. At this time Nazis have been occupying Denmark for 3 years.
Mama! What happened?!
After 3 years of the Nazis controlling Denmark the Jews have learned that they will begin abducting and murdering all Jews of Denmark. Annemarie's friend, Ellen and her parents are Jewish, so their lives are in danger. The Johanson's must protect the Rosen's.
When the Johanson's discover the Rosen's are in trouble they devise a plan to bring them to safety in Sweden. To save the Rosen's the Johanson's bring Ellen to Inge's brothers house (Henrik) and have a fake funeral. Ellen's parents are the the "funeral" (Peter had previously helped them disappear). There is also a couple with a newborn and an old man. During the "funeral" all the Jews were brought onto Henrik's boat were they went safely to Sweden.
Mama leaves at 2:30 and will be home by 3:30. It is 4:30 and Mama is nowhere to be seen. After looking around a bit, Annmarie discovers Mama on the ground outside. After Annemarie saw Mama she found out that Mr.Rosen tripped on a loose step and dropped the package he was supposed to deliver to Henrik. Annemare must race through a dark path to deliver the package. Soldiers open the package and discover it is a handkerchief. Annemarie is still able to successfully get the handkerchief to Uncle Henrik.
Once Annemarie gets to Henriks boat, Henrikis able to hide the Rosens and the rest of the people. Mama calls the doctor and gets better. All the people are now saw in Sweeden. Uncle Henrik says that Annemarie was very brave and the war will end.
Once the war was over, Annemarie takes out the long-hidden Star of David necklace that had belonged to Ellen. Annemarie fondly remembers and misses her friend, but is happy that she and her family were able to safely escape to Sweden, away from the threat of the Nazis.
