After the train ride to Uncle Henrik's they had to walk to his home. On the way, Kirsti found a kitten and named it Thor and Annmarie told Ellen where she kept the necklace.
When they arrived at Uncle Henrik's, they rested. On the second day, Uncle Henrik told them his Aunt Birdie died and they'd have her funeral that night. Annmarie doesn't think she has an Aunt Birdie but Uncle Henrik tells her it's easier to be brave when you do not know everything.
Before the funeral , Thor and Kirsti went to bed. As they brought out the casket many people came into the house including Ellen's parents and other Jewish refugees. After everyone arrived, a Nazi soldier came and asked what they were doing. Annmarie's mom told them they were holding a funeral. She told him she couldn't open the casket because Aunt Birdie had typhus, The casket really held blankets.
After Annemarie's mom and Henrik took the Jewish refugees in small groups to boats where they would travel to Sweden, Annmerie says goodbye to her best friend Ellen. Her mom doesn't come back and Annemarie becomes worried. She looks outside and sees her mom on the ground with a package beside her. Her mom tells her to run and bring it to Henrik.
Annmeries' mom tells her to to use a basket and wear a cloak. As Annmerie runs through the woods in the dark, she starts hearing growls. She becomes scared and tells herself she is Little Red Riding Hood. Two soldiers stop her and take her basket and open the package. All there was in the basket was a hankerchief, so they let her go.
She delivers the package to Uncle Henrik and the rescue mission continues. Annmerie runs home and sleeps. The next morning, Uncle Henrik tells her that the handkerchief had drugs so the German dogs couldn't smell the Jewish people hiding in his boat. If Annmerie didn't come they wouldn't have done it successfuly. Two years later, after the war is over, Annmerie celebrates with her family and wears the Star of David herself until Ellen gets home.
