The Bombardment

If it wasn’t for the sacrifice of the children, this story might very well have been forgotten.

Ole Bornedal, Director

THE BOMBARDMENT tells the story of a tragedy, which hit Denmark on March 21st, 1945. An aerial attack on Gestapo’s headquarters in Copenhagen had fatal consequences, when the British Royal Airforce mistakenly hit a French catholic school, killing over 120 people including 86 children.

The fateful event is experienced through the eyes of the children and nuns at the school, and through the young Danish freedom fighters and British RAF pilots.
