Korinna's parents did the right thing. They protected people in need and saved lives. Her parents are far from enemies or traitors, they're heroes.


We decide who our enemies are by the way we are brought up. Korinna thought all Jewish people are enemies becasue people have been telling her that her whole life. But the real enemies are people who want to hurt others. Just like Hitler wanted to hurt Jewish people. Korinna realized this in the end of the book (Julia Ash).

No, korinnas parents were not the enemy because they were trying to help out people who were in danger.

I think we decide who our enemies are by the way we see them treat others.

Korinna's feelings about her parents changed over the course of a few days. When she first found out that they were helping "the enemy," she felt betrayed and almost turned her parents in. However, once she began to see the jews as human (especially the little girl, Rachel), Korinna began to side with her parents. What events triggered this transition?
