  • It is admirable of Denmark that there is The Museum of Occupation in the Aarhus.Vi Swedes estimated the Danes ' battle against Nazi. Unfortunately, chickened out Sweden la flat against the Nazis, something that many Swedes are ashamed of today. Besaettelsesmuseet is very interesting and rich that is important to visit for today's youth, this shows the Danes ' struggle against the cruel Nazis.

  • The Museum belongs to the Gestapo headquarters in the past. When police in 1944, the Gestapo moved into interned. In the cellar where the Museum is housed, has been interrogated and tortured resistance fighters. The cells, where detention was sitting between interrogation, stands as back then. Occupation years in Aarhus is well documented, and the Museum is operated today mostly by volunteers who like to talk about the dramatic events during the German occupation. There is free admission if you have annual pass to the old city.
