After Adolph Hitler made plans to create a Â“model protectorateâ€ť out of Denmark, Winston Churchill predicted the nation would become the Fuhrerâ€™s tame canary. Isolated from the Allies and fueled only by a sense of human decency and national pride, the Danes created an extraordinary resistance movement that proved a relentless thorn in the Nazisâ€™ side. German troops were stymied again and again by the sabotage of railways and airbases and some 7,000 Jews were carried to safety in Sweden. They were not soldiersÂ—they were simply ordinary citizens who refused to stand idly by and witness an atrocity. The story of their selfless courage and daring should inspire countless future generations.
