Denmark apologises to children taken from Greenland in a 1950s social experiment

BBC News

"Denmark's prime minister has apologised to 22 children who were removed from their homes in Greenland in the 1950s in a failed social experiment," says this article from BBC News. These children, from Greenland's indigenous Inuit population, "were taken to Denmark to be re-educated as 'little Danes' who could later return to foster cultural links," according to the article. "But when 16 did return they were put in an orphanage and many did not see their families again. Only six are now alive."
