‘Out of Order: How the German military aided the Danish rescue of the Jews’

90 mins. documentary, in-development. Production company: strandiflm productions, Frankfurt, Germany.
The most remarkable fact about Denmark during the Second World War is that it was the only country in occupied Europe that managed to save almost its entire Jewish population.  What is less known but also remarkable is that many Germans aided in this endeavor, from the military attaché, Georg Duckwitz, who warned the Danish resistance of the impending Gestapo raid, to the common soldiers who looked the other way, to the sailors who inspected the holds of the fishing boats filled with Jewish refugees and declared the boat to be empty.  These Germans, like their Danish counterparts, put their lives at risk in order to do what they felt was needed.
