Archives of Danish Occupation History 1940-45

An almost complete collection of Danish clandestine leaflets and books from the time of the German occupation make up the main part of the archives, but in connection to this you will find other material about the occupation in the form of photos, private archives, documents about the resistance movement, about the political parties and many other things. In general, the Archives cover all parts of Denmark. However, the geographical placement of the Archives in the western part of Jutland is reflected in the material.

The collection of original documents, clandestine leaflets and writings and a collection of handbooks are available for historical research, exhibitions, educational work directed to primary and lower secondary schools, gymnasiums, colleges of education, universities etc. and to everyone else who is looking for information on the Second World War, the time of the German occupation and related subjects.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
