    4.5 stars for this jewel One reason I enjoy historical fiction is the educational aspect learning about something for the first time This is not your typical WWII Holocaust book This one tells the story of how the Danish people, after their small country was invaded by Germany, smuggled nearly the entire population of Jews 7,000 across the sea to Sweden, saving them from deportation and almost certain death.The story is told through the eyes of 10 year old Annemarie Johansen, and how her f 4.5 stars for this jewel One reason I enjoy historical fiction is the educational aspect learning about something for the first time This is not your typical WWII Holocaust book This one tells the story of how the Danish people, after their small country was invaded by Germany, smuggled nearly the entire population of Jews 7,000 across the sea to Sweden, saving them from deportation and almost certain death.The s...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this beautifully written Historical Fiction story which I believe was written for children and yet adults may well find it such a worthwhile and enjoyable read as well The evacuation of Jews from Nazi held Denmark is one of the great untold stories of World War II On September 29, 1943, word got out in Denmark that Jews were to be detained and then sent to the death camps Within hours the Danish resistance, population and police arranged a small flotilla to herd 7,000 Jews I thoroughly enjoyed this beautifully written Historical Fiction story which I believe was written for children and yet adults may well find it such a worthwhile and enjoyable read as well The evacuation of Jews from Nazi held Denmark is one of the great untold stories of World War II On September 29, 1943, word got out in Denmark that Jews were to be detained and then sent to the death camps Within hours the Danish resistance, population and police arranged a small flotilla to herd 7,000 Jews to Sweden Lois Lowry fictionalizes a true story account to bring this courageous tale to life She brings the experience to life through the eyes of 10 year old Annemarie Johannesen, whose family harbors her best friend, Ellen Rosen, on ...

    As part of a children s book readathon I am hosting on my blog, Number the Stars by Lois Lowry was voted as a winner in the poll We assigned this stellar Newbery Medal winner to this week and have been sharing all our reviews Normally I m not a fan of reading literature that delves into this subject matter, but given it was written for young adults children, I thought it would be less painful While it was definitely less harsh than a few other books I ve read on the topic, it was still quit As part of a children s book readathon I am hosting on my blog, Number the Stars by Lois Lowry was voted as a winner in the poll We assigned this stellar Newbery Medal winner to this week and have been sharing all our reviews Normally I m not a fan of reading literature that delves into this subject matter, but given it was written for young adults children, I thought it would be less painful While it was definitely less harsh than a few other books I ve read on the topic, it was still quite em...
