Denmark-

Let's travel Denmark-
http://www.mapsofworld.com/indexmaps/denmark-map.jpg

I have a travel guide in mind-he is from Danish roots and has visited many times-

As you all remember - Hitler sent a mandate that all Jews were to be rounded up-
During the German occupation of Denmark-the King's daily ride through Copenhagen became a symbol of Danish sovereignty. This picture was taken on his birthday in 1940. Note that he is not accompanied by a guard.-the photo is from WIKI-

This from my studies of Denmark;s history:
As you all remember - Hitler sent a mandate that all Jews were to be rounded up-
Denmark's-King Christian- wore the Star of David on his arm -when he gave a speech-shortly after the roundup mandate was issued-soon- a majority of Danes started wearing the Star of David arm band-
Thus- the NAZIs could not tell who was who! The Jewish people were 'safe' in Denmark--

and- to this day- the Danes raise the US Flag on the Fourth of July- to thank the US for her efforts during WW II-
Speaking of flags- did you know the Danish flag is the oldest National flag -

I would want this to be a trip- small in numbers-big in heart-
Being 1/2 Dane - I have a personal interest in seeing that country...

I've visited Denmark and thought the Danes to be a bit on the pinko side.

Of course, that's par for the course in Europe after over hundred years under various types of socialist governments - It gets to the point where the people are too ignorant and dumbed down under Leftist PC to even consider the free market and individual effort.

The most shocking thing that happened on my tour to Denmark was talking to the very attractive Danish guide who said she turned down an offer of marriage from an American she loved because she feared losing her pension benefits in Denmark!

"There is no socialism in America," she concluded...

This happened in 1977. I'm sure she has since changed her mind about American socialism.

I have never been there, but would love to visit one day.

At least there are still a few foreign nations that appreciate the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform.

That would have been a brave king to defy that evil maniac hitler.

A-I am in the 'first thoughts' --for this trip--: - )

MK- He was brave and I believe that the Danes are now standing for freedom again- remember the 'Cartoons'-

Very interesting bits on Denmark. They are standing up to the Jihad better than most EU countries.

Have a great trip, and be careful, have fun!

Have a great time. I've been to Amsterdam, and imagine it is similar. I enjoyed it.
