The Danes stance was heroic, but the wheels sere already in motion. The mechanics of the Final Solution were in motion and the "just say No" position would have little effect on other occupied countries, particularly those with historical anti-semetic roots.
It didn't. Almost all of them fled to Sweden, which was a neutral country at the time. However the succesful rescue of the Danish jews were due to the cooperation of the Danish government with Nazi Germany. In Denmark the cooperation policy is a matter of heavy debate. On one hand we saved the jews but if all occupied nations had been as cooperative, Germany might have won the war.
We didn't, we were liberated by the Russians, the Brits and the Americans. However the last period of the occupation (from August 1943 to May 1944) leading up to the liberation by UK on the 4th of May 1945 the Danish resistance was among the most active resistance movements in the German occupied part of Europe.
Denmark was overrun but not destroyed in 1941 and many Danish Jews were able to escape early in the war before the persecution of Jews really got into full swing. These Jews many who spoke German and other languages were able to start resistence groups in Denmark, France, and Belgium as the first Jews who saw the Holocaust coming if something wasn't done. They were mostly in the West and unable to really help the Poles, White Russian Jews and others in Eastern Europe who had their own undergrounds.
The simple answer would be both, but WWII was not simple at all. The Danish being of Skandinavic ethnicity and the Danish royal family being historically connected to most all the royal families in Europe did favor the Danish at the time as they were seen as "ethnically superior and of moral character". At this time the Danish had no army to talk of but a small resistance did sink their own vessels so they could not be used by the Germans. As for the Jews in Denmark, it is documented that many of them were pressured or made to leave Denmark. In some ways the Danish saw the actions of the Germans as a necessary evil to clean society and more importantly to finally unify Europe under one central government though they always opposed the German occupation of Denmark.
There was none. _______ In Western Europe and Germany there was practically no Jewish resistance to the Nazis. The Jews were too scattered and assimilated for resistance. In Eastern Europe there was the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising (see link); there were the revolts and mass breakouts at Sobibor and Treblinka and various smaller acts of resistance. In Poland and Belarus there were active Jewish Resistance groups.
There was no armed Jewish resistance in Western Europe but some Jews were active in various resistance movements in occupied countries. In Eastern Europe there was the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, and there were uprisings and mass break-outs in Treblinka and Sobibor. There was also a group of Jewish resistance fighters in Lithuania and also in Belarus. There were, of course, also some individual acts of resistance and defiance.
