Abstract:

Sixty years ago the Final Solution was attempted in Denmark. The plan was averted, over 95 percent of the country's Jewish population survived the war. How and why Jews escaped the Nazis blueprint for their extermination is the subject of this compelling new documentary film. Through the very human testimony of survivors, the story of the Danish rescue is told with clarity, empathy and humor. Because what happened in Denmark has taken on legendary proportions, the filmmakers have carefully researched the subject, separating the truths from the myths, such as that of the Danish King wearing the Yellow Star. In addition to the survivors stories, the filmmakers have interviewed rescuers and scholars. From members of the resistance to ordinary people who helped when they saw a need, viewers will be introduced to courageous people who took action to save their threatened compatriots. The film points out the reasons why the Danish Jews were not treated as harshly by the Nazis as Jews elsewhere. This story is a fascinating chapter of Holocaust history.
