Nameplate: for fishing vessal STJERNEN [The Star] that was pressed into service to move Jewish refugees from Denmark to Sweden over a route established between the Danish isle of Moen and southern Sweden. Some years after the war, the boat was laid up and dismantled for scrap. Because of its historic role in 1943, the nameplate was saved.
