Historical events Denmark surrendered to Germany in 1940 and so Germany took over Denmark. Jewish people got warned on their New year that they would be taken and relocated by the Germans. They fled to Danes to be safe and the Danes helped them to get to freedom in Sweden. Swedish scientists made a powerful powder made out of dried rabbit blood and cocaine. If smelled by dogs it would destroy their sense of smell. The war went on for 5 years! More than 7 thousand Jews were sent to Sweden for safety.
Cause and effect Cause The German soldiers looked for Jewish in Annemarie’s apartment. The German soldiers were taking Jews away. The soldiers came to Uncle Henrik’s boat. Effect Ellen had to pretend to be Annemarie’s sister because she was Jewish. Annemarie’s Mom had to take her family (except dad) and Ellen to Uncle Henrik’s house. Luckily, they had a handkerchief that took the dogs’ smell away so the dogs couldn’t smell the Jews.
Lexi’s Emotional Response I was scared when the soldiers stopped Ellen and Annemarie when they where running. It was funny when Annemarie sister Kirsti was back talking the soldiers. I got sad when Ellen had to act like Annemarie’s sister. I was sad again when the soldiers stop Annemarie on the way to Uncle Henrilk in his boat and was eating her bread. Then the book makes me feel sad for all the Jews that got taken away and are dead.
Miranda’s emotional response The book made me think like I’m in it. Like I’m Annemarie or Ellen –When the soldiers stopped Annemarie, her sister Kirsti, and Ellen and when the soldiers came to Annemarie’s apartment to “investigate” for Jews, it made me anxious if Ellen was going to be okay or not go to a camp. It’s like a life or death situations. Well, it is. You have to choose carefully. –This book made me learn about the consequences in life if you don’t follow the “ruler”. It doesn’t matter what your religion is. This is like the slaves situations. The people are treated poorly because they are “different”. Annemarie had to be brave when she helped save her friend. And when she did or tried, it made me nervous if she would succeed! But I felt relieved that she did! This book also taught me to accept what I have and not complain if I don’t like it! I also learned that wars are real stuff, and not games!!
