Stockholm Paper Denounces Deportation of Danish Jewish Children

Download PDF for this date

The Stockholm newspaper Aftontidningen, in an editorial reported today to the Office of War Information, states ironically that the German deportation of 52 Danish Jewish children last week demonstrated how “a defenseless group of people should be treated without insulting them.” The children were sent to join their parents in the Vester prison.

“Suppose these German methods were applied to the Germans themselves,” the editorial said. “Would the Germans have anything to complain about? Would it be unjust? If German infants were stuffed into trucks and sent to concentration camps to be reunited with parents who had previously been sent there, it would be only what the Herrenvolk already have practiced.”
