Memorial plaques on the tour<br />

1. Gilleleje Station: The city walk begins here. Around 1,300 <strong>Da</strong>nish Jews arrived by train at the<br />

station. From here, they were hidden by locals until they could cross the Kattegat.<br />

2. The corner of Gilleleje Hovedgade and Østergade No. 2: In the haberdashery shop, some of<br />

the first Jews in Gilleleje made contact with locals who could sail them to Sweden.<br />

3. Østergade No. 5B, the loft: Around 60 Jewish children and adults hid in the loft on October<br />

6, 1943. Gestapo came by and looked in but did not go up to the loft.<br />

4. Gilleleje Harbour, Auktionskajen: Suddenly, someone shouted "the Germans are coming."<br />

The crowd panicked, and the schooner Flyvbjerg cast off before everyone was on board.<br />

5. Gilleleje Church, the church loft: About 60 Jews were hidden in the church loft in Gilleleje.<br />

The Germans came, searched the church, and took the Jews to the Horserød prison camp.<br />

6. Østergade 53, the old parish house: Around 20 Jews and some resistance members were<br />

hiding. The Germans forced their way in through the front door and arrested the Jews.<br />
