The Memorial Anchor

One of the memorials known to most Danes and tourists visiting Copen-hagen is the Memorial Anchor, or in Danish Mindeankeret, in Nyhavn, close to the Royal Theater in Copenhagen.


However, how many of the local or foreign by passers ever speculated, why there is an anchor placed just there!

The inscription printed on the stones actually tells the story; in remem-brance of the more than 1,700 sailors who last their lives in Danish or Allied service during the 2nd World War.

Sailors, who died, in an attempt to liberate their country.
