World World Two Refrence

Numbering The Stars
Annemarie lives in Copenhagen during the time of the war she is fun and careing for example when natzis come looking for her friend (who is a jew.) On page 48. She "pretends her freing is her sister." To protect her.
Ellen is a jew so she is very worrysome at the time with the possibility that she may get taken away to a consentration camp. Anne (Ellen's best friend) has agreed to conceal Ellen while her parents run off to hide.
Kirsti is very imaginitive and playful. She loves to listen to made up stories made up by her family. and she loves to play pretend with her sister Annemarie
I would recomend this book to anyone above the age of 10. Because of some of the discriminitory content. For example the Natzis, "Mistreat the jews" on page 67 by forcing them to scrub the streats. And on page 112 Germans force families to go into hiding. Wich might be slightly heavy for some children.
- " The less you know the braver you'll be."
- " We will stick together."
- " We will go through great causts for people we love."
