Read full description of the books:
SUMMARY: For eleven-year-old Peter Andersen and his twin sister Elise, living in the city of Helsingor, Denmark during World War 2 means German soldiers in the streets, German patrol boats in the harbor, and German fighter planes in the sky. Everyone is nervous, especially their Jewish friend Henrik and his parents. Of course, before the invasion, no one in Denmark cared whether a person was Jewish. But now the Nazis are secretly rounding up all of the Jews who live in Denmark and sending them to prison camps in Germany. Suddenly, Henrik and his family must escape! Sweden offers the only place of refuge, but with soldiers lurking the streets and Nazi boats patrolling the sea, only a miracle can get the Jews to safety!
REVIEW: An excellent children's book for upper elementary grades. Mr. Elmer's writing pulls you right into the lives of Peter, Else and Henrik. You can feel, hear, and see all that the children are experiencing. Great historical detail regarding the Danish underground and their work to save almost all the Danish Jews during World War II. This book would be a great introduction to the resistance movement during World War II as well as a lead-in to discussion of discrimination.
FAVORITE QUOTES: "Since I've become a Christian a few years ago, I've learned that it's wrong to lie, period. The Bible says so. But the Bible also tells the story of a woman who hid two Jewish spies during a war, and the she lied to the authorities about which way they went....In the New Testament, there's a mention of the woman again. And it says she did the right thing."
