Why was it important that Ellen remove her Star of David necklace? The soldiers have come at night. If Ellen has her Star of David necklace on, the soldiers will know that she is a Jew. Ellen panics and can't undo it. Annemarie rips it off her neck and hides it in her hand.

Please submit each of your other questions separately (one at a time). Thanks.
