Abstract:

A study of Danish opinions and policies regarding the stream of Jewish refugees arriving from Germany between 1933-40. Sketches the phases of persecution of Jews in Germany and the reactions of the democratic states. Relates the work done for the refugees by the international community and international Jewish organizations. Focuses on the political, social, and economic problems behind Denmark's refugee policy. Immigration restrictions were imposed in order to limit the number of immigrants. Discusses parliamentary debates concerning the refugees. Often, refugees were sent back to Germany. Describes the rescue action of children initiated by Danish women's organizations in 1939. Examines the attitudes of the Jewish leadership in Denmark, and also the rescue work of a committee constructed for this purpose, the "Committee of May 4th". In conclusion, explains Germany's behavior, the options of the refugees, the responses of various authorities to the refugee problem, and the endless obstacles faced by Jews trying to escape.
