y the end of Number the Stars, every character has had to make a sacrifice for the greater good. The Rosens must give up their belongings and move to a foreign country in order to protect themselves and their young daughter, Ellen. Mama and Papa put their children's lives at risk by helping Danish Jews to escape to Sweden. Even little Annemarie loses her childlike innocence when she risks her life to help her friend. Uncle Henrik and Peter put themselves in mortal danger to save the lives of the country's Jews––even those they don't know personally. They are fighting for a cause that is more important to them than their lives. Ultimately, Lise and Peter die for the Resistance - and remain a symbol for Danish solidarity and courage after the war is over.
