Call Across the Sea

Henny has grown up with her father’s boat, the Gerda III, as a home away from home. She loves sailing the waters between Denmark and Sweden, carried along by the salt breeze. But when Nazi rule tightens in Copenhagen, Henny joins the resistance. And when Hitler orders the Gestapo to round up all Jewish citizens, Henny realizes that the Gerda III isn’t just a boat — it’s a means of escape for her Jewish neighbors.

Safety and freedom are just across the channel in Sweden — as long as Henny doesn’t get caught. This powerful book by the author of Louder Than Words explores the true story of how Denmark's resistance ferried almost the entire Jewish population — 7,000 people — to safety, at great personal risk. Through the eyes of one courageous girl, this compelling book brings to life a little-known part of World War II and highlights the unsung acts of heroism that moved history forward.
