DRAGOR AND THE RESCUE OF THE DANISH JEWS DURING WW2

One of our experienced guides will tell you their personal story of the rescue of their own family and the miraculous rescue of 7,000 Danish Jews during The Second World War.
Brave fishermen helped more than 95 % of the Jewish population in Denmark to safety in Sweden in a heroic act the world had 
never seen before. Many Jews escaped from Dragor on small boats including the fishing boat Elisabeth, which brought Charlotte 
Thalmays, father and grandmother to safety in Sweden on a cold and dark night in October 1943.

dragoerToday Dragor Town is a charming village with old half-timbered houses, cosy cafes and restaurants. Only 8 miles from the centre of 
Copenhagen, the visit to Dragor will not only evoke the past, but also give you an interesting and unique experience of the lives in 
small Danish villages.
