Stenvad Peat Digging Museum - Randers - Denmark - European Tourist Guide - euro-t-guide.com
The Hvidsten Kro (Inn) and it inhabitants played a very important role in the Danish World War II history. The landlord - Marius Fiil - from this inn, some of his children and some of his friends jointed the Danish Resistance movement in 1943 - and were later known as the Hvidsten Group. They received weapons and agents that were airlifted into Denmark. In 1944 the group got caught and 8 of them were execute by the Germans, which caused a general strike in Denmark. The inn is still active - but it is left more or less as in 1944 as a memorial for the Hvidsten Group.
The "Mustard Point" is the location outside Hvidsten,
where the Hvidsten Group received the weapons and agents that were flown in from the UK.
