THE HELSINGØR CROSSING is a reportage on the Danish resistance group code-named The Elsinore Sewing Club (DK: Helsingør). Together with the Swedish security police they managed to transport 1,500 refugees and resistance members across the sound between Denmark and Sweden during the Nazi occupation of Denmark.
Conny’s gripping narrative recounts the true story of how The Sewing Club helped their fellow humans in need, sometimes at the cost of their own lives.
