Summary of the Book
The Resistance group is in charge of helping young Jewish babies escape before getting deported. Hanneke helps very little due to the fact she is more focused on finding Mirjam. On the night the Resistance group is trying to retrieve a camera, Hanneke is also trying to get Mirjam to come with her to escape. Mirjam runs from her and is then shot.
While Hanneke prepares the body she notices that this can't be Mirjam, she doesn't fit the descriptions. Although she was wearing Mirjam's clothes and had the paperwork. Hanneke then talks to Christoffel who says he knew all along that the girl hiding in the pantry was Amalia. He helped her escape which accidentally led to her death.
Turns out that Amalia had switched papers with Mirjam to keep her safe and was unable to renew her papers. Mirjam was found safe at a hotel.
