 Amazon.com: The Yellow Star: The Legend of King Christian X of Denmark: Books: Carmen Agra Deedy,Henri Sorensen
Here Denmark's courageous King Christian responds to the Nazi edict that all Jews must wear a yellow star by wearing a yellow star himself, and his act inspires his subjects to do likewise.
Grade 2-4-Blending fact with legend, Deedy tells of Denmark's King Christian X's simple act of rebellion and courage, which served to unite his people against the Nazis.
"And, once again, in the country of Denmark, there were only Danes." Deedy's language is simple and rhythmic, relating what she calls in the notes "a story that should be told." Smrensen's period paintings serve almost as formal portraits of individual Danes living their lives in the face of the looming Nazi occupation.

According to popular legend, King Christian X chose to wear a yellow star in support of the Danish Jews during the Nazi occupation of Denmark.
In fact, unlike Jews in other countries under Nazi rule, the Jews of Denmark were never forced to wear an identification mark such as a yellow star.
However, the legend conveys an important historical truth: both the King and the Danish people stood by their Jewish citizens and were instrumental in saving the overwhelming majority of them from Nazi persecution and death.

The policy of the United States is that of defending for Denmark her sovereignty over Green­land, so that she may have a full exercise of it as soon as the invasion is ended.
A description of such areas, by metes and bounds, and a statement of the purpose for which they are needed shall in each case be communicated to the Danish authorities in Green­land as soon as practicable, and the negotiation of a formal lease shall be undertaken within a reasonable period of time thereafter.
It is with appreciation that I note your renewed assurance that, although the present circumstances prevent the Government in Den­mark for the time being from exercising its powers in respect of Greenland, your Government fully recognizes the Sovereignty of the Kingdom of Denmark over the island.

 The New York Review of Books: The Legend of King Christian: An Exchange
There are actually three legends: One, that King Christian threatened to wear the Star, were it ever enforced in Denmark; two, that he actually did so; and three, that he inspired thousands of his countrymen to do likewise and that the Nazis thus did not know whom to arrest and deport.
King Christian was very friendly to the Jewish community in Denmark and offered moral support both when anti-Semitism became a political issue in the 1930s, and during the occupation itself.
For that reason, it was essential for the Resistance authorities, the Freedom Council within Denmark, and the Danish Council in exile in the U.S. and U.K., to generate propaganda emphasizing Danish opposition to Nazism.
