Asked in World War 2, Scandinavia
When did Scandinavia become occupied?
Scandinavia is a region, not a country. The countries that make up the region of Scandinavia are Denmark, Norway and Sweden. During WW2, Denmark and Norway were both invaded on April 9, 1940. Sweden was never invaded and was able to remain neutral throughout WW2 by allowing the Nazis to move supplies through Sweden while also offering asylum to Jews fleeing from Nazi persecution.
Did any countries try to help the Jews in WW2?
Yes, some countries did. Sweden, which was neutral, granted Swedish citizenship to Jews in Europe to protect them. Denmark, which was Nazi-occupied, sent its Jewish population to Sweden before they could be rounded up by the Nazis. After the revolt began in the Warsaw Ghetto, Great Britain delivered weapons and supplies to the Jews by parachute.
