The sculpture in Denmark Square in Jerusalem. A little boat carrying rescuers and the rescued.
The signs are in Danish, Swedish, Hebrew, Arabic, and English. Every time I pass I read one, and always some tears come, and I say thanks to the brave Danes and Swedes. Their actions then give hope today and faith in humanity.
Fast forward 1943 to 2008. A pizza place with a Hebrew sign, a boulevard called Herzl, and two girl soldiers of the Israel Defence Force. We made it home, with a little help from our friends.
