…Denmark saved 7220 of ther 7800 Jews during WWII plus 686 non-Jewish spouses?

Denmark was occupied by the German Army but they did not enforce their laws on the country until later in the war.  When Hitler gave the order October 1, 1943 to arrest all the Danish Jews for deportation, the citizens instead cooperated to rescue them.  Boats of every size ferried the Jewish people over to Sweden undercover of night.  When the Nazis came to make arrests, most of the houses were empty.
