A thrilling true-life adventure about doing the right thing to save your friend - even if it puts your own life at stake. When the Nazis invaded Denmark in the 1940s, Jewish families were generally left alone, unlike other parts of western Europe. But all of that changed suddenly in 1943, and when the call went out to round up Denmark's Jewish families, thousands of non-Jewish Danes worked together to smuggle their Jewish friends and neighbors across the water to neutral Sweden, and safety. That true series of events forms the basis of this compelling stage adaptation of Number the Stars, Lois Lowry's popular book for middle-school readers.
