Exhibition 2 / 5

A recollection celebrating the 100th anniversary of the reunification of Southern Jutland with Denmark.

The Treaty of Versailles, signed after World War I, paved the way for the referendum, which led to the current border between Denmark and Germany. From 8 February, visitors to the museum’s Photographic Gallery have the opportunity to view a series of historical photos. They document the process leading from the end of World War I to the festive events in summer of 1920, when King Christian X and the people of Southern Jutland celebrated the return of the ancient region to Denmark. Original movie clips, one of Christian X’s uniforms and other objects are also shown in the exhibition.
