In connection with the international Pre-Genocide conference, Humanity in Action Denmark and daily newspaper Politiken also arranged a month-long exhibition commemorating the 75th anniversary of October ’43. 30 artists, including Björn Nørgaard and Peter Brandes, donated art pieces along with reflections on the Danish aid to Jews in Denmark seeking safety in October 1943. The art auction has made it possible to establish an October ’43 Travel Grant for extraordinary young people working on human rights. For the next 10 years, the October ’43 Travel Grant will be presented at a special Humanity in Action event: “Combining the message of the past with the challenge of current human rights and minority issues” says Anders Jerichow, chair of Humanity in Action Denmark.
