Denmark - The light in the Dark

Today Denmark is world famous for the rescue of the Danish Jews. This fame comes from abroad, where the rescue story has assumed its own life as a popular tale. However, it contains no nuances. Nor does it include the 472 Danish Jews who were deported to Theresienstadt. Only the basic fact that 99% of the Danish Jews survived the Holocaust.

Consciousness of the Holocaust increased especially after the Adolf Eichmann case in 1961. The extent of the Nazis' systematic genocide was exposed, while the world watched in horror. The rescue of the Danish Jews became the light in the darkness.
