This paper examines the reasons for these differences and how the German occupation in each country affected their respective Jewish populations. In addition, the attitudes of each country's non-Jewish population is analyzed as to the effect they had on the outcome of the Nazi Party's goal of making Europe Judenrein (free of Jews).

From the Paper:

"Having developed along parallel lines in many areas, the Nordic countries may appear as an entity instead of as separate, sovereign countries. The differences of the nations, however, show up clearly when one investigates the fates of the Jewish populations in the respective countries during WWII." It is easy to group the countries of Scandinavia into a single mass based solely on location, but it is imperative to realize that each faced its own unique set of circumstances during WWII. It is most fascinating to examine these circumstances as they apply to Norway and Denmark; within their borders, they were subjected to radically different levels of German influence. "
