I’M Danish and we were just occupied during WWII. My nan had an affair with a German soldier and got her hair cut off and was paraded around Copenhagen after the war. Hitler liked the Scandinavians cause of the blond hair blue eyes thing. There were resistances and some danish fishermen “helped” Jews cross to Sweden (after getting paid a large sum of money).

Think about it: they called it a WORLD WAR for a reason – it’s shorter and easier to list the countries that weren’t involved.
