In no particular order:

  • My dad studied abroad in Denmark when he was in college (with a different program)
  • In a class about the Holocaust I learned that the Danish collectively saved their Jews during the Holocaust by shipping them to neutral Sweden – Read more here. I also just ordered this novel about the rescue of Denmark’s Jews. Thanks Aunt Sandy! A country with a group of people like this must be fascinating!
  • I have not yet been to Europe
  • I heard great things about DIS from friends who previously studied abroad there
