This gripping account of the Danish Resistance during WWII is an inspirational story of courage and bravery during the Holocaust. Annemarie and her best friend, Ellen Rosen, have learned to live with soldiers on every corner and with the deprivations brought on by the war. One day, they receive warning that the German occupying force of Denmark has begun its campaign to 'relocate' all the Jews in Denmark. Annemarie's family takes in Ellen, and quickly moves to the coast to escape. This book is a fascinating introduction to the Danish Resistance's success in smuggling nearly almost the entire Jewish population - - nearly 7,000 people - across the sea to Sweden in just under two weeks. Recommended for ages 8 to 12. The 1990 Newbery Medal winner. 137 pages, hardcover with dust jacket. 25th Anniversary Edition.
