Traces of a grim time in Danish history can be found all over Copenhagen.
In this interactive podcast, we will delve into a part of history that many prefer to forget.
We go back to colonialism, when the economy in Denmark flourished. During this period, Denmark was a successful trading nation, shipping exotic goods throughout most of the world. The Danes sailed with sugar, spices, alcohol, cotton, and African slaves. We will go in search of traces from the slave trade and find hidden references in everything from buildings and statues to nursery rhymes and famous personalities. Along the way, we will learn much more about the flourishing trading period and Denmark's engagement in colonialism.
