The following description comes from the event organizer.

When Hitler threatened Denmark’s Jews, the community arose overnight to save them. Danes from all levels of society stood up to the German might at a time when most of Europe turned a blind eye. Together they hid over 7,000 people and then sailed them to safety in neutral Sweden. Over 95% of the Danish Jews survived the war. When they returned to Demark, they were welcomed home, most finding their homes and belongings untouched.

The Danish Solution is about how the Jews in Denmark, helped by a massive citizen-driven action, escaped the Holocaust. This documentary presents an in-depth look at this exceptional episode. The film highlights unique characters and explores why such a rescue happened in Denmark.
