DRAGØR AND THE RESCUE OF THE DANISH JEWS DURING WW2 

In the footsteps of the rescue of the Danish Jews

One of our experienced Jewish guides will tell you her personal story of the miraculous rescue of her own family and the 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 Dragør fishing village on small boats including the fishing boat Elisabeth K571k, which brought many Danish Jews to safety in Sweden on a cold and dark night in October 1943.

Today Dragør 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 Dragør will not only evoke the past, but also give you an interesting and unique experience of the lives in 
small Danish villages.
