No star for Danes

HAVING lived in Denmark for more than 20 years and being fluent in Danish, I thought I should advise you of an inaccuracy which has appeared in two recent editions of the Jewish Telegraph.

Last week, I watched on Danish television the 75th anniversary of the Rescue of the Danish Jews in October, 1943. This ceremony was held in Copenhagenís synagogue and was attended by the President of Israel and his wife, as well as Frederik the Crown Prince of Denmark, the Danish Prime Minister and the president of the World Jewish Congress.

Two different speakers confirmed that the Danish Jews did NOT wear the yellow star during the German occupation of Denmark.
