The Kingdom of Denmark also comprises two autonomous constituent countries in the North Atlantic Ocean: the Faroe Islands and Greenland.
Denmark itself has a total area of 42,924 square kilometres (16,573 sq mi), with the largest being Zealand and Funen.
Denmark, Sweden and Norway were ruled together under the Kalmar Union, established in 1397 and ending with Swedish secession in 1523.
Denmark and Norway remained under the same monarch until outside forces dissolved the union in 1814.
Denmark historically includes the former colonies Greenland and the Faroe Islands. In 1948, the Faroe Islands became a self-governing territory within the Danish state. The kingdom of Denmark, which is situated in Scandinavia and northern Europe, is surrounded by the North Sea, Skagerrak, Kattegat, and the Baltic Sea.
The country covers approximately 16,634 square miles (43,095 square kilometers).
The churches read letters of protest to their congregations.
Jutland, Zealand, and Funen (Fyn) are the largest and most densely populated regions.
Lidegaard claims this was because the Danes refused to help the Germans, but the causation might also have worked in the other direction.
It was when the Danes realized that the Germans were letting some Jews go that they found the courage to help the rest of their Jewish community escape.
3 large circuses: Circus Arena, Circus Benneweis and Circus Dannebrog, a medium sized circus: Circus Baldoni and 3 dog and pony-shows (what Americans call high grass circuses): Circus Arli, Circus Krone (a Danish circus having the same name as the large German Circus Krone) and Circus Mascot.
Economically, the season was for most circuses probably fairly acceptable, but certainly no cause for cheering roar.
