This year sees Denmark celebrate 100 years since Southern Jutland, once part of Germany, was reunited with the country on June 15, 1920. The aim of the 2020 Reunion is to highlight public awareness of the historic occasion, and its cultural and political significance to Danish society. The anniversary will also serve to underline the present-day friendship with Germany, and shine a spotlight on the European perspective of the Danish-German border region.
