Danish Resistance Movement
By Abigail Cohen
The Danish Resistance Movement was a mostly nonviolent movement in Denmark, sparked by the invasion of Germany in 1940 during World War II. While efforts by the Danish Resistance Movement did not completely eradicate the presence of German troops, it did allow the Danish people to protect their culture and come out of the war fairly unscathed. The Danes decided to take an offensive position against the German Nazis, and through strikes, protests, and underground publications they were able to prevent a vast amount of violence from erupting in their homeland.
