Videotape testimony of Ib J., who was born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1924. Mr. J. speaks of his education and family life; the German occupation; becoming involved with the underground; sabotaging Nazi cars and trucks; and his feelings when a comrade was killed in an underground action. He describes the gradual reaction of the Danish population to the occupation and provides a general overview of the growth and activities of the Danish underground movement. Mr. J. also expresses his disappointment with the way in which certain people behaved immediately following the war; his embarrassment when thanked by Jews for his efforts; his shock upon entering German concentration camps two weeks after liberation; and the postwar settlement of Jews in Denmark.
