Building Background
Knowledge

Learning Target: I can compare and contrast two or more
characters, settings, or events in a story, drawing on specific
details in the text.

Background of this Story:
In some countries around the world the government is

called a dictatorship. In a dictatorship, one person or a small
group of people have complete control of the country. In many
cases the military enforces have the control. If a person does
not follow the rules, they may be arrested, threatened,
scared, or tortured. The citizens of that country are not
allowed to talk or act against the dictatorship. A person can be
rewarded if they tell the dictatorship about other people who
are against the government.

Interpretive Question: How does the dictatorship
system of government in the story affect Pedro, his
family, and the citizens it governs?

Summary of the article:
The article “World War II and the Holocaust”

Showś how Adolf Hitler set out to rule the world. He came
into power in 1933 and began to blame the for all the bad
things. Starting in 1941, Jewish people were forced to get off
there houses and give away their business. They sent them
into faraway camps. In these camps over 6,000,000 jews

Learning Target: I can compare and contrast two or more
characters, settings, or events in a story, drawing on specific
details in the text.

Background of this Story:
“For centuries, the Star of David was a symbol of Jewish

pride. But during World War II, Nazis used the Star to
segregate and terrorize the Jewish people. Except in
Denmark. When Nazi soldiers occupied his country, King
Christian X of Denmark committed himself to keeping all
Danes safe from harm. The bravery of the Danes and their
king has inspired many legends. The most enduring is the
legend of the yellow star, which symbolizes the loyalty and
fearless spirit of the king and his people.”

Chapter 2

How does this picture relate to the chapter?

My Thoughts:

Some of the things I found in this book is that…
● They have a very kind king( King Christian X)
● “All danish children grew up familiar with fairy tales”
● Annemarie was telling a story to Kirsti about a King, Queen,

and a princess named Kirsten which is related to this picture
● King Christian rode his horse (jubilee) everyday and he has

no bodyguards, so an outsider asked”who rides that horse
everyday” and another man said that's our king. The outsider
said”Where's his bodyguard” And the other man answered”
all of us our his bodyguards.”

Learning Target: I can determine a theme of a story from details in the text,
including how characters in a story respond to challenges.

Chapter 4

How does this picture relate to the chapter?

My Thoughts:

● They were playing dolls and said that they “would go dance and watch the
fireworks.

● On Kirsti’s 5th birthday, Kirsti, Annemarie, and Ellen all thought of that the
booms were fireworks, but they were bombs.

● Annemarie and Ellen both saw the fireworks, but little Kirsti didn't.
Keywords to show this evidence
Boom, because fireworks go
crackle not to much of a boom
Explosions, because fireworks
don’t explode

events in a story, drawing on specific details in the text.

My Thoughts:

● Annemarie's uncle( Henrik) loves cigarettes, so Annemarie's dad said
that her mom would bring him some cigarettes.

● Papa missed cigarettes and mama missed coffee

● The men that papa had in his office made faces. They also smoked

● Annemarie wanted to help her mom get hope and not hurt, just like the man in
the red bandana wanted to help all those people in need

● Mama was hurt so she told Annemarie to let her lean on Annemarie and let her
put Mamas arm on AnneMarieś shoulder. This relates to the book because the
man with the red bandana held a person, so that person can get to safety

● Mama spoke quickly so Annemarie can follow all the instructions. Mama said ¨
Go get a basket on the table. Quickly, quickly. Put an apple into it, and some
cheese. Put this packet underneath; do you understand. Hurry¨ This relates to
the book because the man in the red bandana made everybody go up the stair
super fast so he could get everyone to saftey.
