Summary

As the German troops begin their campaign to "relocate" all the Jews of Denmark, 10-year-old Annemarie Johansens's family takes in Annemarie's best friend, Ellen Rosen, and pretend she is part of the family.

Through Annemarie's eyes, we watch as the Danish Resistance smuggle almost the entire Jewish population, nearly seven thousand people, across the sea to Sweden. A tale of an entire nation's heroism that reminds us there was pride and human decency in the world even during a time of terror and war.

With a new introduction by the author.
