This is a compelling and suspenseful story of the Jews evacuated from Nazi-occupied Denmark. The family involved in the Resistance need to make hard decisions. Good acting and story.

I watched this years ago when it was on the Independent Movie Channel. It's a terrific story and worth watching again.

The Scandinavian Miracle at Midnight
Artist & Author | Near Mt. Baker, WA | 02/16/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the most remarkable feats of World War II happened in Denmark. After about three years of believing they could live in peace with the Germans, the Jews were finally scheduled to be shipped to the death camps. Fortunately, a trusted Dane working in the German's Command learned of the plan a day or two before it was to happen, so he secretly warned the Jews. Within a matter of hours, the Danish Resistance help get some 7,200 Jews on boats and taken to Sweden. Being neutral, Sweden willingly took in these Jewish refugees. Fewer than four hundred did not escape, but were shipped out of Denmark to the camps. This is the compelling, true story of one family in that 'miracle at midnight.' The Disney movie of that name is a similar story, which chronicles another family experience during that same incident.

There is so much to discuss in this movie that parents will just want to watch it with their kids to decide what would be important to their family. There is very little bad language, or anything objectionable to traditional values families in this movie. It is one you will not soon forget. Oh, one more thing: When the Jews were finally able to return to Denmark after the war, they found their businesses had been kept going, their homes maintained, and even their gardens attended by the Danes!"
Great Movie
Steven Baird | Wasilla, Alaska USA | 08/01/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an excellent movie, and I also think it was one of the best World War 2 movies I have ever seen. Seeing people being courageous in the face of fear in real life is one of the most powerful things I think any movie could be about. The relationships formed were very touching as well. I will recommend this to any and all I see, and as proof of how good I think it is, I have never desired to write a review of any movie before this one."
Another great Holocaust story.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I always hesitate to say too much about these movies as it takes away all the elements of surprise.

I very much enjoyed this movie. It shows how people help people and what we are able to do when we have to.

I hope by remembering where we were we will never go there again.

A must see for Holocaust survival lovers."
