It is April 9, 1940 when Nazi Germany invades Denmark; the Danish government surrenders and cooperates with the Nazi occupiers. But Denmark's gentile ambassador to the United States of America, Henrik Kauffmann, refuses to follow the German directives. Wheeling and dealing with President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Kauffman engineers an audacious, brilliant plan to defeat Hitler’s intention to deport the Danish Jews.


Post Film Program: Sunday, January 9 at 10am via Zoom Meeting


Johanne Helgeland, director of The Crossing, in conversation with Kate Redway, granddaughter of Danish ambassador, Henrik Kauffmann. Moderated by Kelly Ramot,  Executive Director of Thanks To Scandinavia (TTS), a division of the American Jewish Committee (AJC). TTS keeps alive the inspiring stories, many of them little known, of how Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish and Bulgarian people protected thousands of their Jewish neighbors during the Holocaust, often at great personal risk. This post-film program is accessible to ticket holders for The Crossing and The Good Traitor.
