In October 2018, it is 75 years since the action against the Danish Jews took place. The Danish Jewish Museum and the Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS) wish to mark this event with the publication of the Swedish interrogation reports, also known as refugee protocols. These protocols were admitted in connection with the flight of Danish Jews to Sweden in the period around October 1943. The source material is not only important for sheading light on the rescue operation in terms of flight routes, arrival times and payment conditions, but also to give an insight into the experiences of the Danish Jews during the escape.
Due to generous support from Ernst og Vibeke Husman Fond, Politiken-Fonden and a large privat donation, we now have an online database at safe-haven.dk that can meet the need for knowledge for researchers, family researchers and in the education sector.
Now we need to uploade the protocols. However this requires financial support. You can help the museum with a contribution. Amounts may be paid to Nordea, reg. No. 2191 and account number 6282598122
