Number the Stars by Lois Lowry Chapter 9
How does the chapter 7 and 8 setting contrast with the city setting of previous chapters
Annemarie and Ellen prepare to go to bed in Annemarie's room. Ellen asks if Annemarie thinks soldiers will come to search the apartment. Annemarie does not think so. Ellen jokes that if they do, she can practice her skills as an actress by pretending to be Lise. Ellen hopes to go to acting school.
Who trips on the loose step? Why is Mrs. Once everyone has arrived, Uncle Henrik says that it is time for him to leave. He leaves through the front door. Shortly after that, a German soldier knocks and demands to know why so many people have gathered at the house.
The author writes a new chapter title that foreshadows because it gets the reader confused about the chapter and want to read more. The author also explains how the German soldiers almost tricked Kirsti into saying that Ellen is a Jew. A example of foreshadowing is when mama said Ellen's parents had gone to visit some relatives. When actually they have to hide from Nazi soliders. One example is at the end of chapter 8 is when they say There was no Great-aunt Birte.
