Like No Other Country: The Remarkable Rescue of Denmark’s Jews

On October 1, 1943, the Germans came for Denmark’s Jews.   

Almost no one was home. Warned by their Christian neighbors of the Nazi plan to deport them to concentration camps, they’d found shelter with friends, in churches, hospitals and schools. Then ordinary Danes risked their lives to smuggle almost 8,000 Jews north to fishing villages, where they were hidden on trawlers that took them across the Øresund Strait to neutral Sweden. And when they returned after liberation, the Danish Jews found their homes intact, having been safeguarded from theft or looting by their fellow citizens.

More than 90 percent of Danish Jewry survived World War II, and the Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center is honored to share the extraordinary story of the bravery and kindness of the Danish people during our darkest hour in collaboration with Thanks To Scandinavia.

After a screening of scenes from the film, Passage to Sweden, we will be joined for a conversation with:

Suzannah Warlick, Director of Passage to Sweden

Leo Goldberger, Son of a cantor, Leo and his family were among 8000 Danish Jews rescued by their neighbors. He is professor emeritus of psychology at NYU.

Chana Sharfstein, Daughter of the chief rabbi of Stockholm during WWII, she is an author, educator, lecturer and tour guide from Sweden.

Howard Veisz, Caretaker of Gerda III, the boat that ferried Danish Jews to safety, Howard chronicled its missions in Henny and Her Boat.

Moderated by Kelly Ramot, Executive Director, Thanks To Scandinavia.

A link to the full film will be sent to all registrants in advance.

In partnership with Thanks To Scandinavia organization.
