7 July-30 Dec 2008. The Arbejdermuseet is hosting an exhibition of anti-Nazi cartoons from the 1930s by two well-known Danish artists of the period, Herluf Bidstrup (1912-1988) and Martinus Hougaard (1897-1956). Illustrating the dangers for democracy and freedom of expression posed by the growth of Nazism in nearby Germany, the exhibition testifies to the courage of the two cartoonists, who dared to draw a picture of what was happening around them. Denmark signed a non-aggression pact with Hitler in 1939, but Germany invaded in 1940 and occupied the country until 1945. Admission Dkk50. Pensioners & students Dkk40. Under-18s free. Daily 10.00-16.00.
