Last week, I showed you the stately building of the children’s tuberculosis sanatorium. Today’s post is on the treatment or cure at the same place during the years of operation from 1911-1959. The old photos are from a brochure on the subject from the Danish Museum for Nursing History. The last one is from a visit to the museum. Some children […]
At the beginning of the 1900s, both adults and children suffered and died of tuberculosis. Medical science showed that fresh air and sunshine were essential for healing and a committee prepared a prestigious building project in Kolding, East Jutland in Denmark. Experts thought that to place children at adult hospitals was unacceptable. The money was collected by people who bought […]
Denmark is known for the many bicycles. I used my bike as a means of transportation for many years. Then not so much...
Two weeks ago I wrote a little about the young Danish Freedom Fighter Kim Malthe-Brun. The book that inspired me wasn’t easy to translate as it consisted of letters and diaries from the last three years of his life. I keep material in a basket that I use for blogging, and soon after the post was released, I found an […]
I wonder what other threat could take away our rights to assemble in the future? What about asking questions on why small and more significant businesses had to close down? Why are the warning signs about the COVID-19 so alike all over the place? Why were healthy people in some countries forced to stay inside and be deprived of sunshine and fresh air?

In my childhood, before I could read, I often looked […]

Not long ago, on June 15, we have a special day for our flag. It’s said that we got it from heaven during a battle in Lyndanis Estonia on that date 500 years ago in 1219. Like the Crusaders, our army tried to Christen the area. The Dannebrog is the world’s oldest flag. Unfortunately, not much was celebrated on the event. Denmark […]
Odense in Funen is the city of Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875). On our way to an annual Chamber Music Festival in Middelfart, another place on Funen we had a look in the old part of Odense. The museum for H.C. Andersen is worth a visit at another time. Odense Odense The Hindsgavl Festival is held through many years in an […]
