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.

When Nazis wanted to gather jews from Finland, we in Finland simply said "No" and Nazis were like "Erm... okay then". Even Hitler knew who is wearing trousers in Nordic family. :D

Because you believed that U.S. public education told you the truth. They didn't. They told you a few little things to satisfy your curiosity, but nothing they ever told you was the complete story. You can now spend the rest of your life reading about the history of the -rest- of the world, if you really want to know what happened. Or not..

I don't think Israel would be depicted as you describe. I think it would be more like 13 Arab brother countries surrounding Israel, pointing cannons at him, with (sunglasses) Israel in the center holding up an Uzi (that America handed to him maybe?) and saying, "Bring it on, Arab boys. After 70 years you have YET to break my borders".
