Be inspired by the previously unknown heroism of the Danes. In 1943, Danish fishermen risked their own lives to send 7,500 Jews to Sweden. They saved roughly 90% of the Danish Jewish population.
In 2001, as Denmark revises their immigration policy, two men are struggling to separate fact from fiction. This gripping play examines the malleability of truth, shared history, and how easily our memories can be altered.
Playwright A. Bodin Saphir forces us to closely examine the plight of today’s refugees. In the here and now, would we welcome immigrants? Risk our own family to hide another?
How will history remember us?
