May Educator Night: Gerda III: Acts of Resistance During the Holocaust
Wednesday, May 13, 2020 -- 4-6 pm
Join our education staff to learn more about Gerda III, a wooden work boat built in 1926 to re-supply offshore lighthouses along the Danish coast. During the Nazi occupation of Denmark during World War II, she took on another cargo: clandestine groups of Jewish refugees that she transported to freedom.

By an act of the Danish Parliament, the Gerda III was donated to the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City. The vessel was restored to her wartime appearance, complete with neutral flags, by the J. Ring Andersen yard in Denmark. Mystic Seaport Museum is proud to help care for the boat and exhibit her in the United States.

Learn about the ways that you can share the stories of Gerda III with your students at this special teacher program.
