This is for any of you who still have questions about my Motherland's role during WW 2. Mainly for you Sarah, since you seem to be confused on the subject.

I got this from Wikipedia..http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rescue_of_the_Danish_Jews

A small sample of what you will find:

The rescue of the Danish Jews occurred during Denmark's occupation by Nazi Germany during World War II. When German authorities in Denmark ordered the Jews' deportation to Germany in October 1943, many Danes and Swedes took part in a collective effort to evacuate the roughly 8,000 Jews of Denmark by sea to nearby Sweden. The rescue allowed the vast majority of Denmark's Jewish population to avoid capture by the Nazis and is considered to be one of the largest actions of collective resistance to repression in the countries occupied by Nazi Germany. As a result of the rescue, most of Denmark's Jewish population survived the Holocaust.

There is quite a bit more, but I am sure you don't need me to show you, no matter how brain washed one is, one should be able to figure it out.
