Danish Daring


Between 70 and 90 per cent of Jewish people in Hungary, the Netherlands, Greece, Latvia and Poland perished in the Holocaust.

In Estonia, Belgium, Norway and Romania it is estimated that 40 to 50 per cent did so, while in France and Italy the proportion was somewhere around 20 per cent. In both Bulgaria and Denmark, however, just one person died.
