Number the Stars is based on the real events of September 29, 1943 when Danish freedom fighters of all ages risked everything in daring, hurried rescue attempts of Denmark’s entire Jewish population. This fictionalized account of one such escape story is brought to life through the eyes of 14-year-old Annemarie Johannesen. The Johannesen family harbors Annemarie’s best friend, Ellen Rosen, on the eve of the round-up and helps smuggle Ellen’s family out of the country to safety. The courage, ingenuity and love wielded by two young best friends makes Number the Stars a very inspiring and unforgettable young adult drama.
