Hurry hurry hurry


Hurry hurry hurry

Denmark was well aware that it didn't have the military power to fight the Nazis, so the plan was to surrender and cooperate with them. However, they also knew what the Nazis did to Jews, so when reports came in that the Nazis were on their way the Danish government immediately got hold of 99% of Danish Jews and shipped them off to neutral Sweden in the dead of night.
(Unlike in this comic though, the Jews knew where they were going and why)

This of course also means the Jewish community in Denmark is pretty small today.

In Norway we often pride ourselves of fighting, of not surrendering, and keeping an active resistance movement during the war - but the truth is that 90% of our Jews were killed, while Denmark saved almost all the Danish Jews. It's a black spot in our history (they weren't even shipped off by Germans, the Norwegian police rounded them up after tips from Norwegian neighbours and put on a ship headed for Poland)

@sneachda Yeah, if "enjoy" is a right word. This is the movie after which I wanted to wash my brain, not because it is bad, but because it's hard to look at all that cruelty and suffering. Anyway, it is georgeus!

So, I decided to read out loud all those "shit" that Denmark was sayin through the comic, and apparently it's harder than I expected to do in one breath unless you do it fast XD
