Warsaw Ghetto Survivors in New York Honor Denmark for Saving Jews

Prominent diplomats, led by the Danish Ambassador, Count K.G. Knuth-Winter felt and Countess Knuth-Winterfeldt, were among the honored guests here when the Warsaw Resistance Organization staged a Salute to Denmark ball at the New York Hilton last night. Proceeds from the event, according to Jonas Turkow, president of the organization, will go toward the erection of a monument in New York, honoring the memories of victims of the Nazi holocaust.

The Government and people of Denmark were particularly lauded at the bail for the achievement by the Danish people, in 1943, when they rescued most of the Jews in that country. Other prominent guests, in addition to the Danish diplomat, were Consul General and Mrs. Torre Tallroth, of Sweden; Consul General and Mrs. Katriel Katz, of Israel; Consul General and Mrs. Per Navdal, of Norway; and Label A, Katz, national president of B’nai B’rith.
