Title: Denmark: Unconquered, Though Captive

Comments:    This wonderful Danish World War II poster features the Art Deco Grundtvig Church in Copenhagen, Denmark. The Church was designed by the Danish architect P.V. Jensen-Klint in 1922 who based the design in part on a style of ecclesiastical architecture that used stepped gable ends common during the Middle Ages.

The title of the poster derives from the fact that when the Nazis invaded Denmark in 1940 there was no opposition and no battles, so Denmark technically was not conquered, just captive.

This is apparently a very rare poster, I have not seen it before and could not find it on any of the major poster dealers' web sites.
