The first refugees to return home were soldiers from the Danish Brigade. Many Jewish refugees had joined the brigade as volunteers. The brigade had been formed in Sweden in 1943 and comprised close to 5,000 young men. The plan was that the brigade should assist in the liberation of Denmark.
The brigade landed in Elsinore on May 5, 1945. In the one single episode of fighting, three young men were killed, but that was all.
