Denmark's geographical location and features played a major role in the success of smuggling Danish Jews to Sweden. This is because between German occupied Denmark and neutral free Sweden there was only a straight of water about 10 miles wide. It was easily crossed in small boats at night often undetected by the German soldiers.
