Many Danish Jews have kept up personal relationships from the years in Sweden. Locations have been visited later with the family. This is also true of Theresienstadt, where a museum about the town's past as a concentration camp was established after the fall of the wall in 1989.
Re-visiting is a confrontation with experiences and memories. Not everyone wishes to re-visit the past.
The Melchior family spent their first night in Sweden with the Persson family.
Here the Melchiors re-visit the Swedish family on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of their arrival in Sweden. The two families have been in contact for all these years (The Danish Jewish Museum).
