Number the Stars, by Lois Lowry

Find in catalogThis book is about a girl and her Jewish best friend growing up in Denmark during the German occupation in the early 1940s. It’s also about the Resistance movement that helped many Jewish people escape to Sweden to avoid being relocated to concentration camps. I believe this is a great book for children to introduce them to learning about the Holocaust and World War II. I also think adults will find this book to be good and a quick read. One of my favorite parts was the afterward at the end because the author explained how she included the stories of real people who lived there during that time. I haven’t read this book in a long time, and I found it in my box of other books I had in storage. It was well worth the read.
