Humanity in Action: Resistance and Rescue in Denmark
- This event has passed.
ON DISPLAY: Monday – Friday, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm, through June 30.
Visit a powerful photography exhibition that explores the history of the rescue of Danish Jewry in 1943 and provides a striking narrative of individual and collective resistance. The photographs are the work of Judy Ellis Glickman.
Excerpt from the exhibition:
Susse Pundik, whose portrait is in the exhibition, says “ I was 14 when we had to fell from Denmark. We were five, my grandparent and my parents. The resistance people had organized our escape. Everyone body was tense. Daylight was approaching. Suddenly the head of the group informed us that there was no room for all five of us on the boat. My mother was paralyzed. She did not know whether to stay with her old parents or join my father and me. In the end the fisherman made up her mind. ‘You must go with your husband and child,’ he told her gently but firmly. ‘We shall take care of your parents.’” They did. The family was reunited in Sweden.
Presented in partnership with Humanity in Action.
