The Story of the Danish Jews and their Rescue during WWII
For almost 400 years the royal family in Denmark supported and protected the small but influential Jewish Community. So it was no coincidence that King Christian X made a huge effort to protect the Jews when Denmark was occupied by the Nazis in April 1940. Brave fishermen helped more than 95% of the Danish Jewish population across the strait to safety in neutral Sweden. Many Jews escaped from fishing villages on small boats. Hear personal stories about the miraculous rescue of almost 7,000 Danish Jews in October 1943.

Charlotte Thalmay, founder of Copenhagen Experience, will walk us through this engaging & important historical tour. She has a Bachelor in Tourism and cultural education, and she has been working as a professional guide since 1996.
