1943: German Troops In Copenhagen

German troops in Copenhagen in 1943.

The German soldiers in the photograph are nothing more than a couple of kids, probably half-scared much of the time.

An intensive examination of the behavior of the Danish population during The German Occupation has yet to be written. Danes, on the whole, did not sheathe themselves with honor from 1940 to 1945—and the story should be told, in all its gruesome details, to provide an accurate assessment of a nation showing itself in want of moral fiber.
