The Museum of Danish Resistance, located in Copenhagen, takes visitors through a dark period in Europe’s history — the Nazi occupation. While this period of time was brief, the stories it tells are both educational and heart-breaking. Covering a mere five years (1940 – 1945), the museum profiles the Danish resistance during the Nazi occupation. On April 9, 1940, Germans moved in to Denmark, taking over the country. After France fell later in the year, the Danish began to adapt to life under German control.
