Description

Front: A black and white photograph of a man in uniform with other soldiers behind him.

Back: A pasted sheet of information from International News Photos.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: News report that King Christian was arrested and was interned in his own castle. This followed a wave of strikes and sabotage. The report also mentions that a part of its navy had been scuttled in the harbor at Copenhagen and that other warships escaped the Germans by fleeing to Sweden. In just one month from this date, the Danish people would work to move its Jewish citizens out of the country to Sweden, and away from the inevitable deportations to German death camps.
