Børn í heimsveldi

Anne Kirstine Hermann

When the UN saw the light of day in 1945 after World War II, the intergovernmental organisation demanded that all nations had to give up their colonies and grant them self-rule. This meant that Denmark had to let go of Greenland. But that never happened. In the 1940s and 1950s, different Danish governments deceived the UN as well as the people of Greenland in order to keep Greenland as a part of Denmark. This caused great harm to the Greenlandic culture, language and not least the Greenlandic children.

BØRN Í HEIMSVELDI (Children of the Empire) tells the extreme and shocking story of one of the darkest chapters of Danish colonial history for the first time and thoroughly examines what happened when politicians and government officials decided to make Greenland Danish and to turn the island into a Danish province. This was done by hiding the truth about the UN regulations from the Greenlandic people, by going against the recommendations of the top lawyers in Denmark, and by implementing new systems that were intended to turn Greenlanders into Danes.
