One of the most successful actions against Nazi Germany’s extermination of Jewish people took place in Denmark in October 1943. More than 7000 Danish Jews were sailed to safety in Sweden – hidden in fishing boats and small ships. As a result, 98.5% of the Danish Jews survived World War II. With life-affirming Jewish music, Klezmerduo tells the story of Danish Jews, on their escape to Sweden, and the story of the many Danes, who had the will and courage to help their fellow citizens, in the hour of greatest danger. With Ann-Mai-Britt Fjord and Henrik Bredholt.
