Voices in the Void

In the summer of 1943, the order was issued to assemble and deport the Jews of Denmark.

The Danes decided to disobey! They refused to collaborate with the deportation of thousands of Denmark’s Jewish citizens and Jewish immigrants.

This decision and its implications are described in the animated film "Voices in the Void", produced by 'Humanity in Action'. The film tells the story of the young boy Bent Melchior, who would go on to become Denmark’s Chief Rabbi.

The rescue story as a beacon for the future
Bent Melchior made it his life's mission to spread the light that he felt was revealed during the rescue - and carried on by his son and grandson, Michael and Yair Melchior.

"I think the moral is that you have to listen to your conscience. If you feel that there is something to do, don't say: "well, let others", but do it yourself. Make the difference".  Rabbi Bent Melchior
