    Default Who does this monument comemorate?

    Hello,

    This is a monument in the Churchil park in Copenhagen, Denmark.
    Who do you think it commemorates?

    The inscription:

    "Descendants go forward like waves in the sea
    they swell and settle down
    But those we have to remember in graves
    who died for freedom and peace.

    to commemorate the danish ???
    who gave their lives for freedom fight 1940 - 1945.

    raised 22nd of June 1996 by the Danish State

    I think its for the defenders of Denmark or also known as Holland maybe also for the american Gis who protected Holland.

    I think you'll find that incorrect, Denmark is not also known as Holland. Holland is another name for Netherlands.

    The Holland part was good.

    The monument is for danish freedom fighters. But not all of them, only a part.
    So that is the question: what was common for these freedom fighters? They have a distinctive name.

    Excellent, Cuts! Yes, Danish Communists. The monuments was raised by the Danish State.

    Has it just been a lucky guess? Or you googled it?

    Neither, I have been on Ex there a few times & we had R&R in Copenhagen.
    The Resistance Museum is well worth a visit.

    I think both you and your teacher should have a look at a map. After all there is another country (Germany) inbetween the Netherlands and Denmark.
    BTW, correctly Holland is just a province of the Netherlands (albeit the one where the two capitals Den Haag and Amsterdam are sited). A Dutch friend from Tilburg in the South blows regularly up if somebody confuses the Netherlands with Holland. Historically the Protestant Holland ruled the Catholic south (Province Limburg) and according to my friend up to the end of WW2 the Dutch Catholics were very much treated as second class citizens by the government in Holland.

    General Horii's horse that was lost on Kokoda? If it is supposed to be his horse, the sculptor has had a flight of fancy because it was probably a lousy nag, not much better than a mule.

    So, the only other possibility I can think of is one of Emperor Hirohito's white horses "Hatsu Shimo" (First Frost) or "Sirayuki" (White Snow),

    Great. A monument for people who fought to replace one dictatorship with another, hardly fighters for freedom...

    With friends like these, it's hardly surprising so many Danish signed up for the Freikorps (there was a serious possibility that Denmark could have ended up on the wrong side of the post-war division line so you hardly had to be a Nazi to want to fight for them)...

    Awaits incoming in three... two... one...
    1884 electric cartridge. Look similar to anything?

    Man of Stoat,

    I do not quiet get your point with this post. But I just want to say that Danish Communists, constituting the majority of the Danish freedom fighters in WW2, really saved the face of Denmark at the end of the war.
    Danish goverment had distictive cooperation policy (samarbejdspolitik) that the Danish goverment and the King declared back in 1940.

    Here is the speech of the Danish prime minister in 2003 blaiming the cooperation policy of Denmark back then: http://www.befrielsen1945.dk/temaer/...er/kilde0.html

    So the Danes can rightfully say "THANK YOU DANISH COMMUNISTS!"
    I think your irony is inappropriate in this case!
