Review:
Though it dispels some of the myths surrounding the Danes during WWII - such as, when the Danish Jews had to wear the Star of David, the Danish population also wore it - the author is quick to point out that such stories reflect a truth about the Danes. In fact, the Danish people, in one night, rose up against the Nazis. They hid and ultimately saved almost their entire Jewish population. Never glossing over villainy, Levine writes compellingly of this "living wall" raised against the Holocaust.
