Courage to Act: Rescue in Denmark
On October 15, The Museum of Jewish Heritage: A Living Memorial to the Holocaust will open a new exhibit that explores the rescue of Denmark’s Jewish population. Eighty years ago this October, the Danish people did what no other European country did. Rather than turning their backs, or cooperating, they set out to rescue their Jewish neighbors, secretly providing transport by sea to Sweden. Ordinary citizens saved nearly 95% of Denmark’s 7,800 Jewish population. After the war, they welcomed them back. Courage to Act: Rescue in Denmark commemorates–through archival materials, photographs, recordings, testimonials and other artifacts–one of the most effective instances of mass resistance in modern history. The exhibit is intended for ages nine and up, providing an accessible entry point for young people to think about and understand the Holocaust. And just as importantly, Courage to Act, asks each of us: how would you respond if you heard a cry for help?
Venue: The Museum of Jewish Hertitage
