Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II of Denmark Inaugurates the FLUGT: The Refugee Museum of Denmark in Oksbøl.

On the afternoon of Saturday, June 25, 2022, Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II of Denmark inaugurated the FLUGT: Refugee Museum of Denmark in Oksbøl.

After World War II, over 35,000 East Germans civilians fled to Oksbøl, Denmark between 1945 – 1949. As a result, the remote town on the west coast of Denmark became the largest refugee camp and fifth largest town in the country.

Though many of the buildings are gone, including a hospital for the East German refugees, there are a few buildings still left in the former refugee camp. As a result, several years ago the idea to establish a museum was set in place.

Visitors to the museum will be able to experience what it was like to live at the refugee camp by following “…in their footsteps along with the original paths posters about life in the refugee camp have been established in the woods.”

After the traditional cutting of the ribbon, Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II accompanied by the German Vice-Chancellor, His Excellency Robert Habeck, toured the museum and viewed the exhibition entitled, Refugees At All Times.

According to the Danish royal court, the exhibition, based on the UN Refugee Convention, conveys “…the history of refugee flows through the past century.”

The FLUGT: Refugee Museum of Denmark will be open to the public on June 29, 2022.
