Best Answer

He publicly declared that regardless of German assertions to the contrary, that Danish Jews were just as Danish as Danish non-Jews. he is also rumored to have worn the Jewish Star as a symbol of solidarity between all Danish people. Because King Christian X took this attitude, many Danes saw it as their patriotic duty to the Fatherland to save Danish Jews. This resulted in the most successful preservation of any European country's Jewish population through the war.

Did King Christian X wear the Star of David?

No. There was no requirement for Danish Jews to wear the Yellow Star and, as a result, King Christian X was never put in a position to wear one. However, he was reported by British Newspapers to have said that if the law were passed in Denmark, he would require all Danes, including himself, to wear one. His private diary confirms this view. However, given King Christian X's consistent stance against the plight of Danish Jewry and his help in facilitating the escape of Denmark's Jews, there is more than enough to support the kind regard that both Jews and Danes have for his anti-Nazi activism without this false rumor.
