visiting the city's landmark
Round Thwer adjoining Trini-
ty Church. When the Jews
fled to Sweden and the Nazis
occupied Copenhagen, the
Torah scrolls from their
synagogue were hidden in the
Round Tower. There they re-
mained safe from the Nazis
until the Jews returned and
re-opened their synagogue in
1945.
The synagogue itself pro-
vides the last chapter of the
story. When Jewish Danes
returned after the liberation,
they gathered in Copen-
hagen's synagogue to pray.
Then, in 1953, Danish Jews
celebrated the tenth anniver-
sary of their rescue with a
special service in this
synagogue. The attending
dignitaries included the King
and Queen of Denmark.
Later, in 1961,
Copenhagen's Jews began a
complete restoration of their
cherished synagogue, using
funds from the Conference of
Material Claims against
Germany.
The restored synagogue is
located on Krystalgade.
Designed by Danish architect
Gustav Friedrich Hetsch, it is
a building with a simple
exterior.
But the sanctuary is strik-
ing and filled with light, with
an elaborate ark, gilt
menorot, and white and gold
decor.
The synagogue was
dedicated in 1833, but Jews
had been living in Copen-
hagen long before this. In
fact, their history in Den-
mark began in 1622, when
Jews were invited to live in a
German province, Holstein,
then ruled by Denmark. The
Danish King, Christian XV,
extended the invitation in
order to use Jewish expertise
to help develop a more
modern commercial economy.
He offered the Jews com-
mercial privileges and
freedom of religion, so they
settled in the small town of
Gluckstadt, just 30 miles
from Harburg. Later, small
Jewish communities grew up
in Danish towns and in the
capital, where Jewish life
became centered. By 1684,
the first synagogue opened in
Copenhagen, and nine years
later, the first Jewish
cemetery was founded.
Today, Danish Jews, who
number just 8,000 in a city of
five million, are an officially
recognized community with
their own governing board
and facilities. In Copenhagen,
besides several synagogues,
facilities include a Jewish
Community Center, a day
school, several homes for the
elderly, and kosher butchers
and restaurants. ❑
