A tribute to the Danish Community - 65 year commemoration events

The Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre was associated with two most successful Johannesburg events commemorating the heroic deeds of the Danish community in rescuing their Jewish neighbours from certain annihilation 65 years ago.

Selwyn Klass, who has researched the story of Danish Jewry during the Holocaust over many years, compiled and coordinated a fitting tribute to the Danish Community for both Second Innings (14th Sept) and the Gauteng Council SA Jewish Board of Deputies (30 November).

Tali Nates, Director of The Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre, spoke about The Righteous Among the Nations. The acclaimed film Miracle at Midnight starring Sam Waterston and Mia Farrow, was screened. This tells the dramatic true-life story of a Danish family who were centrally involved in the rescue effort.
