“Denied” – the story of the Iraqi Asylum seekers in Brorsons church

by Carl Frederik Waage Beck on november 19, 2009

Dear friends,

A few months ago I wrote a post called morality vs. democracy about the Iraqis asylum seekers that took refuge in Brorsons church on Nørrebro.

By order of the Minister for Refugees, Immigrants and Integration and for Ecclesiastical Affairs, Birthe Rønn Hornbech, the church was emptied by the Danish police at 2 am august 13th. The refugees were sent back to Iraq and the story made headlines for a while in Danish and international newspapers.

It’s been quiet for a while now. Then the director Aage Rais-Nordentoft made this documentary short film. The film is 16:22 long – take the time to watch it.

Best regards, Carl
