In Denmark It Could Not Happen

In Denmark It Could Not Happen Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Jewish community of Denmark was the only one in Nazi-controlled Europe which survived the second world war. 500 people were deported to the Theresienstadt concentration camp, the rest - 5,500 - escaped in small boats to neutral Sweden. Their seemingly miraculous rescue was due to the courage and imagination of tens of thousands of Danes, and the rivalry for power between two top-ranking Germans in the Gestapo and in the Wehrmacht.

In Denmark It Could Not Happen tells the tale of humanism in action; people who risked their lives to rescue their fellow countrymen; about a country which protected its Jewish citizens while millions of European Jews went to their deaths. This is also the story of German political intrigue and the German officers and men who sabotaged Hitler's efforts to destroy the last haven for Jews in Nazi-controlled Europe.
