Embark on the Rescue Route Tour to uncover the remarkable tale of how the Danish people saved their Jewish community from the clutches of the Nazis during World War II. Our expert guide will provide an overview of Danish Jewish history, from the earliest arrivals to the present day.

Visit of the Copenhagen Synagogue
Step inside the Great Synagogue of Copenhagen, renowned for its distinctive architecture centered around the Ark housing the Torah scrolls. Serving as the focal point of Jewish life in Denmark since its establishment in 1833, this synagogue stands out for incorporating Egyptian elements in its columns, ceiling, and cornice above the ark.

Visit to the Danish-Jewish Museum
Designed by the acclaimed architect Daniel Libeskind, the Danish-Jewish Museum offers a journey through four centuries of Danish Jewish heritage. Named ‘Mitzvah,’ signifying “good deed” in Hebrew, in tribute to the majority of Danish Jews saved during the war. The museum’s unique design, reminiscent of a boat’s deck, pays homage to the miraculous rescue, providing visitors with a symbolic experience.

During the tour we will pass Copenhagen landmarks such as:

  • City Hall
  • Tivoli Gardens
  • Parliament, Christiansborg Palace
  • Round Tower
  • Royal Palace, Amalienborg
  • The Old Stock Exchange
  • The Pedestrian Mall ”Ströget”

Visit to the fishing village of Dragör

During the harrowing events of October and November 1943, over 95% of Denmark’s Jewish community found refuge in Sweden, thanks in large part to the courageous efforts of Danish fishermen. Leading the way were brave individuals like those in Dragør, where small vessels such as the fishing boat “Elisabeth” played a crucial role in ferrying Danish Jews to safety in Sweden. In Dragør, your guide will weave tales of personal family histories and recount the heroic actions of those who risked everything during those dark and perilous nights.
