In this “…enthralling drama of politics and race, faith and facts” as reviewed by London Financial Times 2 men fiercely compare different reckonings of the exodus of 7,500 Jews from Denmark in 1943.

This “fierce and riveting” (The Guardian) play by A. Bodin Saphir is the previously unknown story of the heroism of the Danes, who in 1943 risked their lives to send 7,500 Jews to Sweden. They saved 90% of the Danish Jewish population. 

To this day there are debates about how this mass exodus was possible. Was this a miracle and a testament to the inherent decency of the Danish character? Or did something else happen?

Playwright A. Bodin Saphir is a filmmaker and playwright. He produced and co-directed the award-winning documentary “Who’s Gonna Love Me Now?” and has adapted and produced a popular series of animated short films written by the children at Great Ormond Street Hospital - narrated by Sir Ian McKellen and Dame Julie Walters. He is currently developing a four-part drama series for the BBC and a slate of feature films. 'Rosenbaum’s Rescue' is his first play.
