9th of April...

Today is the 9th of April;
In 1940 this was the day where the German forces occupied Denmark; After a brave fight the Danish forces had to follow their orders given by the politicians to give up and surrender. The German attaché had made it clear for his Majesty Christian X and his ministers that if Denmark did not surrender the planes circling above Copenhagen would drop bombs and Denmark would be treated the same way as Poland - which was not in the interest for neither Denmark nor Germany, who wished to have a good relationship with Denmark for trade purpose - also after the War.

On 9th of April - many years later my friend was also official occupied (married!); I hope he will be relased on the 5th of May sometime!
