The Danes have a long history of noble behavior in the face of discrimination against religion, ethnic background, etc. Having lived in Denmark as a 4 - 5 year old child, I remember being impressed with the Danes as strong independent thinkers (actually, I imagine I reflected my parents' positive views of the Danes. My father was doing scientific research (on a Fullbright scholarship) with a well-known Danish scientist for one year - but, after that time they thought seriously about moving to Denmark permanently.

Bette Midler once told a very sweet story when she was in Copenhagen. She found a man who took people on boat tours around Denmark..On her trip, she noticed lines drawn on the inside of the boat. She asked what they were. The man replied, that's how many Jews I smuggled out of the country in this boat during the war.
There has to be hundreds of stories like this in Denmark, and the Netherlands- courageous, moral, decent people who risked their lives for what they knew they had to do.

Beautiful !! Many have managed to escape to Portugal then ... so much suffering ... They deserve our deep respect and prayers.
Than you for sharing, Cal.

Thank you, Cal, for sharing this story of survival, and the Heroes who saved these people, from the Nazis. Hope that they have this ceremony every year for generations to come.
