Number the Stars 25th Anniversary Edition

by Lois Lowry

This 25th anniversary edition celebrates a true milestone for this Newbery Medal-winning classic with a fresh new look and an introduction by Lois Lowry. This time-honored story champions a young girl’s bravery and good will in helping her best friend survive in a very unwelcoming, war-torn world.

As the German troops begin their campaign to “relocate” all the Jews of Denmark, Annemarie Johansen’s family takes in Annemarie’s best friend, Ellen Rosen, and conceals her as part of the family.

Through the eyes of ten-year-old Annemarie, we watch as the Danish Resistance smuggles almost the entire Jewish population of Denmark, nearly seven thousand people, across the sea to Sweden. The heroism of an entire nation reminds us that there was pride and human decency in the world even during a time of terror and war.
