Overview

ABOUT THE BOOK

Number the Stars is author Lois Lowry's fictional account of actual historic events that took place in Denmark during World War II. The book follows two families, the Johansens and the Rosens, as they struggle for survival against the oppressive and invasive Nazi occupation.

When it is discovered that the Nazis plan to "relocate"all of Copenhagen's Jewish population, the Johansens realize they must do everything they can to help their Jewish neighbors, the Rosens. The story is told through the perspective of the Johansens' eldest daughter, Annemarie. As the story progresses, Annemarie grows up fast, learning to be brave in the face of certain danger and realizing the importance of doing the right thing, even when circumstances are difficult.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

The character of Annemarie is a ten-year old girl thrust into the world of serious adult problems and life or death consequences. Though she is still a child, she finds her responsibilities multiply as the story reaches its climax.

Annemarie is often shown parallel to her younger sister Kirsti, a precocious little girl who is oblivious to the troubles of the world. Annemarie cannot relate to her sister. Since the death of her elder sister Lise, Annemarie's relationship with her former brother-in-law Peter Neilsen has changed as well. He used to be jocular and relatable. Now, in the midst of war, he is serious and driven. She can no longer relate to him either, leaving her stranded between childhood and adulthood. At various points in the story adults require her to be brave and act mature, but refuse to tell her everything she wants to know, because she is still a child.
