Land of Mine

The Danish "Land of Mine"(Under sandet) is the winner of 25 awards and Oscar nominee for Best Foreign-Language Film.

The movie tells a story of a dark chapter in the Danish history in 1945. After the ending of the occupation of Denmark, Germans prisoners, POWs, only teenagers, were forced to dig up 1.5 million landmines with their bare hands on the beach in West Denmark. The boys have no experience and Sgt. Carl L. Rasmussen (played by Roland Møller) is in charge of the group.  

 

New war museum opens in summer 2017

If you visit Denmark you can in summer 2017 visit a new museum "The Tirpitz Exhibition" in West Jutland. 

The Germans began building the bunkers in 1944 as part of the Atlantic Wall. It was never to be finished. A poster display shows the construction plan and the history of the defence system, of which it formed part, along the entire European west coast. A model shows the gun position as it would have looked if the war had continued.
