Women In The Resistance
A NEW THREE EPISODE DOCUMENTARY SERIES ABOUT WOMEN IN
THE DANISH RESISTANCE DURING WORLD WAR II
It has taken them many years to come out into the open but now some of the women have agreed to tell the story about their work in the Danish Resistance Movement and the dramatic events during the last years of World War II: The purpose of the series is to change the picture of the Danish Resistance Movement as an army of young men wearing cotton coats and broad-brimmed hats. The fact is that women also participated at all levels in the fight for freedom. Some of them were gradually involved in the
actual resistance, participating in large-scale operations, while others carried weapons, hid refugees, fellow resisters and English Men, tracked down informers, procured false identity papers, and took part in liquidations. This is a small selection of the interviews conducted by Pia Friis Laneth. with more than 15 different women. The series has received financial support from among others DR K, The Velux Foundation, the Danish Film Directors, and the Danish Union of Journalists.
