"Denmark was well aware that it didn't have the military power to fight the Nazis, so the plan was to surrender and cooperate with them. However, they also knew what the Nazis did to Jews, so when reports came in that the Nazis were on their way the Danish government immediately got hold of 99% of Danish Jews and shipped them off to neutral Sweden in the dead of night.
(Unlike in this comic though, the Jews knew where they were going and why)

This of course also means the Jewish community in Denmark is pretty small today."

This is one reason why im proud to be danish.
We realized that our power was nowhere near enough to do anything to Nazi-germany, and therefore, had the jews shipped off to a more safer place.

Of course, we would probably have been able to help against the nazis somehow, since we live so close to them, but we are a tiny country..

Fun fact, if 6 million jews died in the holocaust then there would be no jews left on this earth, in fact there were less than 4 million jews before the Holocaust.

Anyone have the story on the one man who spent a fair amount of his fortune saving Jewish and related children by shipping them out of the Nazi reach, or something?

Actually, the Nazis had already been here for four years by the time the Jews were smuggled to Sweden.

That's true, the Nazi's never brought up the Jew issue because they didn't want to ruin what the Nazi's called "the model protectorate" but then Hitler got all pissy and insisted on rounding up the Jews, so the Nazi's organised plans and shizzle but the Denmark resistance - with the help of ordinary Danes - organised the evacuation of about 95% of the Jews in Denmark to Neutral Sweden. 99% of the Danish Jews survived the Holocaust

This is potrayed rather negative, but think. The jews of Denmark were well aware of the nazi treat and Denmark didn't stand a chance against the Wehrmacht.
They could have said, "Well **** them", and let the nazis take them for "camping-trip", but the danish were quick to warn the jewish community and organise boats to neutral Sweden.

Sources tell that politicians and resistance people knew about german plans to deport danish jews on 1. and 2. of october. (during jewish holidays), so on 29. september they sent out runners and looked through phonebooks for jewish-sounding names to warn them.
Neighbours and friends then organised hide spots and prepered ships so they could be saved.

The saddest part was, that in the midst of chaos, many children were seperated from their families and didn't get on the boats.
These were then adopted by danish families, and they fabricated legal papers so the they wouldn't be deported.
