The Danish resistance movement managed to escape by boat to neutral Sweden about 8,000 Danish Jews. The rescue allowed the Holocaust salvation of the majority of the Jewish population of Denmark.
  6. 6. POLISH OCCUPATION.  The German occupation of Poland was exceptionally brutal, because the Nazis considered the Polish to be racially inferior. The Germans began a campaign of terror, firing to thousands of Polish and requiring all the men to make forced labour.

NORWISH OCCUPATION  After mid-1944 the Soviet Union launched a counterattack against German forces in Finland; Red Army units entered Norwegian territory at the beginning of the winter of 1944 and they occupied during weeks Finnmark, the northern of Norway, where the German authorities ordered a mass evacuation of civilians Norwegian amid arctic winter. The low significance of the war against Soviet troops caused none progress through the icy mountainous regions of Northern Norway, compared to other much more critical fronts. However, the Germans ordered an scorched earth plan that, together with the harsh winter of Finnmark, caused great hardship to the Norwegian population of that region.
