History burning

 

Yesterday was a sad day in Denmark, as the city of Copenhagen woke up to a burning Freedom Museum. This museum holds the collection of artifacts from the German occupation of Denmark in 1940-45. Luckily all or most of the items and the very important archive from the occupation was saved, but the building is beyond saving, so it will be a while before it's possibly to visit the museum and learn about these dark years of Danish history.
