S: Number The Stars
BC: My role in the story would be a fishermen that mainly smuggles Jews somewhere safe that they can hide or stay for a while. I would help them by taking them in my boat and taking them to an area where it is safe for them. My relationship with the other characters would be helping them out by getting their friends family's that are Jewish out like Ellen's family out because she needs to be somewhere else if they don't want to be taken by the Germans. I would change the outcome of the story by trying to get as many Jewish people and family's out of Denmark or hide them somewhere safe and help as many as I can or I would hide them in my secret compartment in my boat for a few days while the people who I'm hiding have food. The scene I would be in is when I'm coming back from fishing and some people are Jewish and they have to get out of Denmark. | My boat if I'm in the story. I would help smuggle Jews out to safety.

1: Annemarie is one of the characters in the story. She is 10 years old. She is nice and helps out her family. She is trying to get one of her friends out of Denmark because her friend is Jewish and the Nazis are relocating anyone who is a Jew. Kirsti is 5 years old and she Annemarie's sister. Kirsti is very friendly and when someone says something she always says that she wants to be that. She is a little demanding to people. Uncle Henrick is a fisherman who gets up early in the morning to fish. He is a friend to the Jews and tries to help as many as possible to get out of Denmark, otherwise the Germans would be relocating those people. He is helping Ellen's family get out of Denmark and he is going to get them to Sweden where it is unoccupied by the Nazis. Ellen is 10 years old and a good friend of Annemarie. Her family is Jewish and Annemarie's family is trying to get them out of Denmark to safety, away from the Nazi's. Ellen wears a Star of David necklace. | This is a picture of Uncle Henrick's boat that he uses to help the Jews to safety. It has a hidden compartment that keeps the Jews out of sight and safe.
2: The setting of the story is in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1940-1943 during the war. The Nazi's are relocating the Jews and some of the Jews are resisting so they will not be taken from their homes. The main idea in this story is trying to keep Ellen and her family safe, therefore the places that they go are in hiding in places such as in a hidden area of a boat, inside Annemarie's apartment, and Uncle Henrick's house. There are 2 major problems in this story. The first is the big picture of trying to not let the Nazi's relocate the Jews. The second is a smaller picture, and that is how Annemarie and her family help Ellen and her family escape the Nazi's and get out of Denmark. In the big picture the resistance is trying to fight for the freedom of the Jews against the Nazi's. This is done by the resistance people by finding a spot for the Jews to hide until it is safe for them to come out without the Nazi's finding them. One of the resistance members gives Annemarie's mom and dad the secret newspaper, De Frei Danske, meaning "The Free Danes" and it is illegal. This newspaper is a way for everyone in the resistance to communicate what they are doing to help the Jews.
3: This shows some of the Jews that have been captured being moved out of Denmark. It was not a nice thing for the Nazis to do.
4: The solution to both problems is move the Jews, including Ellen's family, out of Denmark or hide the Jews until it's safe for them to come out. Some examples of where the Jews are safe to hide include to in a boat, in an apartment and in Uncle Henrick's boat. In the story Uncle Henrick said to Annemaire '' If I moved the right boards there would be a room for a couple people to hide in.'' The conclusion in the story is that the resistance is helping smuggle the Jew's into different areas to hide them from the Germans. The Germans will probably not find the Jew's who are hiding unless the Jew's make noise, and the Germans will take the Jew's and relocate them to where they're putting them.
5: These pictures are of The Star of David which Ellen's family wears. The Star of David is also called The Shield of David. It's the universal symbol of Judaism.
6: Annemarie is the main character because she is Ellen's friend and she is trying to help Ellen's family escape from the Germans so they don't get caught. She is involved with most of the situations in the story. Throughout the story she has to act like an adult rather than a child because she has to be brave when the Germans stopped her. While she was going to give Uncle Henrick his lunch, which Annemarie's mom had put in a picnic basket, she also put in a box which had a handkerchief in it. If the Germans had dogs, the dogs would smell the rat's blood that was in the handkerchief, that attracted the dogs and if they smelled it their noses would go numb because of the cocaine, that was in the handkerchief. | This is Annemarie at the beginning of the story when she was 10 years old.
7: Annemarie changed emotionally because she cares for people and is sad for people if something happened. Physically through the course of the book she changes from a child to a almost a teenager, she grows taller and becomes more wise. | Annemarie at he end of the story almost as a teenager at age 12.
8: The scene I'm choosing is one that both Ellen and Annemarie are in. It takes place in Annemarie's apartment when Ellen is visiting. Ellen is in Annemarie's bedroom when the Nazis knock on the apartment door. This surprises everyone in the apartment. Do to Annemarie's quick thinking she yanks off Ellen's Star of David necklace so the Nazis don't think that she is Jewish. The Nazis want to check all of the rooms in the apartment, including the one that the girls are in. Annemarie tells Ellen to pretend to be sleeping so that the Nazis don't come into the room where they are. When the soldiers go into the room that the girls are in, one of the Germans grabs Ellen's hair and says, "Who is this?" Annemarie's mom tells the soldiers that the two girls are her daughters, Annemarie and Lise, her daughter that had been killed in a car accident. Annemarie's mom finds a family photo to show the Nazis that she does have two daughters so the soldier lets go of Ellen's hair. This scene was important because it had Annemarie thinking quickly and had her friend trust her to do what she says so the Nazis don't take her. This is one of many situations throughout the story that Annemarie helps Ellen.
9: These are the soldiers that stormed into Annemarie's apartment looking for any Jews. They were not a nice bunch of soldiers.
