Frihedsmuseet

Resistance Museum

The Impact of WWII on Denmark


Expert Pick Off The Beaten Path

Address: Phone:
Churchillparken
Copenhagen, 1263

Description

The Frihedsmuseet, the museum of Danish Resistance is a lasting symbol of a country that has a confused and complicated view of the last World War. There remains, even today, a sense of embarrassment amongst some that they capitulated without a struggle; "the country who's war lasted as long as a telephone call" and a sense of pride in what the resistance did to tie up a large section of German troops, thereby keeping them away from the main theaters of war. Winston Churchill was among those who recognised the contribution of the Danes to the Allied cause and the museum stands in the aptly named Churchill Park. Its a very honest museum which tries to paint the complete image from those who signed up to fight for Germany with the Friekorps to those executed for helping the Danish Jewish community to escape to freedom.
