KAUFMANN, HANNE


KAUFMANN, HANNE (1926–1997), Danish author. Born in Frankfurt, she was taken by her family to Denmark in 1933 and ten years later found temporary refuge in Sweden as a result of Danish rescue operations. Her works, which reflect her experience of these events, include Kathedral (1964), on the Holocaust, and Hvorfor er denne nat anderledes end alle andre naetter? ("Why is this Night Different from All Other Nights?," 1968), on the flight to Sweden. In 1970 she wrote her book Alle disse skæbner about the Polish refugees who fled to Denmark during this period.
