Denmark Commemorates 70th Anniversary of Jews' Rescue

FSWC Reports:

From Associated Press via ynetnews.com:

A ceremony has been held in Denmark to mark the 70th anniversary of the evacuation of 7,300 Jews during World War II to prevent their deportation to a Nazi concentration camp.

At Copenhagen's synagogue Sunday, Jewish community leader Finn Schwarz told several hundred people it was "almost a miracle" that the October 1943 operation in Nazi-occupied Denmark dodged German patrol boats to deliver the Jews across a waterway to neutral Sweden.
