Review: Darkness Over Denmark: The Danish Resistance and the Rescue of the Jews

User Review  - Megan Bevers - Goodreads

Reading about the Danish Resistance during WW2 certainly makes me proud to be Danish! From the the King of Denmark at the time to the majority of the Danish who helped and fought for their Jewish community, was very inspiring. I hope I can always be a light to those around me who need it. Read full review
