The Rescue of the Danish Jews
in the Latter Half of 1943

Three Jewish brothers and their sister upon arrival in Sweden in a rowing boat on Oct. 6, 1943. With them in the boat were also their aunt and a fisherman. One of the oars (displayed on the photo) broke near the Swedish coast..

"It is 1943. Europe is in a complete state of war. The Endlösung, a term used by the Nazis for the destruction of the Jews, is in full swing. In large parts of German occupied Europe, Jewish children, women and men are being murdered and captured, without much opposition from their compatriots." Denmark did not comply! They helped and protected their Jewish citizens!
