Annemarie is traumatized from the war. The war seems like a surreal hell that she is entering in to. It is difficult for her to make sense about what’s happening. Annemarie internalizes the war through the fairy tale. It helps her understand and cope with all the darkness that war brings. As Annemarie leaves childhood, her fairytales provide comfort for Kristi.
