Explore the stories of Danes who experienced the Nazi occupation during World War II.  A series of posters produced by the Danish Resistance Museum tells the story of how nearly 7000 Danish Jews were brought safely to neutral Sweden, aided by their Danish neighbors.  Artifacts and documents from the Museum of Danish America's collection tell stories of resistance, rations, and navigating daily life in an occupied homeland.
