It's true enough; not idle propaganda. While Denmark and Holland somehow
achieved a not entirely deserved reputation for saving their Jews, the
performance of Bulgaria and Albania was far more praiseworthy, although it
didn't produce the same PR resonance. Both of these countries have reason for
pride on this account.
Some Jews >from other countries even found refuge in Albania.
1 Holland -
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,13509-1795316,00.html
shows that 75% of the Dutch Jewish pre-War population were killed.
This is about what I understood, yet Holland had quite a reputation
for saving its Jews; PR is a wonderful thing.

I did not know the statistic below about Denmark; thank you. Quite a
contrast. Albania, by the way, is said to have lost no Jews at all,
because of popular resistance to German efforts at departation.

2 Denmark -
http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Holocaust/denmark.html says that
Denmark was the only country to actively resist the Nazi attempt to deport
its Jews. It says that of the 8,000 pre-War Danish Jews that only 50 Jews of
500 who were deported to Theriesenstadt didn't survive - this was because of
pressure >from Danish officials expressing concern for the wellbeing of their
Danish Jewish compatriots.
