The Memory of the Danish Resistance

With time the story of the flight of the Danish Jewry has become bigger than the very events that inspired it. In this session, we will think critically about the legacy of the event and its role within the Danish memorial culture.


This course is part of a joint initiative between WEA Sydney, the Sydney Jewish Museum and Shalom Theatre to celebrate Rosenbaum’s Rescue in September at the ARA Darling Quarter Theatre. Be inspired by the previously unknown heroism of the Danes. In 1943, Danish fishermen risked their own lives to send 7,500 Jews to Sweden. They saved roughly 90% of the Danish Jewish population. In 2001, as Denmark revises their immigration policy, two men are struggling to separate fact from fiction. This gripping play examines the malleability of truth, shared history, and how easily our memories can be altered.
