I know I can't believe I'm just now reading this What kind of a children's librarian am IThis is a nice little story about a family who smuggles some Jewish friends out of Denmark during the Nazi occupation in 1943 I always avoided reading this because it looked depressing but it wasn't It wasn't a light story but it didn't have the horrible scenes that fill most holocaust booksHowever the author's note at the end affected me deeply I don't know a lot about my Danish heritage I've always thought it was a sort of boring one Most people I've known are descended from Danes or some Scandinavian mix Other than the Vikings there's never seemed to be much of interest there I've always envied my non Scandinavian friends' in my mind exotic backgroundsI was amazed to read though of the courage and kindness of the Danes during WWII The afterword spoke of the weeks in 1943 when the Danes smuggled almost their entire Jewish population out of Denmark nearly 7000 people to save them from the Nazi death camps Astonishing It makes me want to learn about where I came from

Ten year old Annemarie Johansen and her best friend Ellen Rosen often think of life before the war It's now 1943 and their life in Copenhagen is filled with school food shortages and. i was clearing out my closet over the weekend and found a box of old books that i read as a kidi originally read this when i was about 10 years old and i can tell you that at that age there was no way i understood the depth of horror and severity of the holocaust and i wouldnt have been exposed to that in this story as its rather on the tame side if thats possible for such a tragic event in human history i just remember really wanting to be like annemarie wanting to be the type of friend who would be brave enough to help someone she cared about even when it was seen as wrong and so after a uick re read i feel comforted knowing that i grew into a strong enough person who is brave enough to do everything in my power to help those who need it and to also stand up for what i know to be right even when it might be hard or dangerous or unpopular and i hope 10 year old me would be proud↠ 4 stars
