    Videotape testimony of Ellen P., a non-Jew who was born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1925 and who was involved in the Danish Resistance during the war. She describes the German occupation of Denmark in 1940; her involvement in underground politics in high school soon after the occupation; planning for increasingly active means of resistance; and the activities of the Resistance in warning and hiding Jews, as well as smuggling them by boat to Sweden. She speaks of collaboration with the Swedes for the rescue of Jews, including methods of sabotage and blackmail; her brothers' involvement in rescuing Danes from concentration camps; the girls' training to become soldiers; the capitulation of the Germans; and the bombing of Gestapo headquarters in Copenhagen. She also recalls the political chaos in Denmark during the war and the unified resistance of the population in the face of German encroachment.
