Denmark, Israel mark rescue of Danish Jews from Holocaust

HELSINKI - Israeli and Danish dignitaries on Thursday marked the 75th anniversary of the daring rescue of more than 7,000 Jews from Denmark by boat to neighboring Sweden during World War II.


Israeli President Reuven Rivlin and Danish Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen paid tribute to the events in 1943 in ceremonies at the small fishing town of Gilleleje, some 50 kilometers (31 miles) north of Copenhagen.


Rivlin and Rasmussen laid wreaths at the town's port Thursday, before attending a ceremony at Gilleleje's 16th century church.
