During the interwar period from 1919 to 1925, a Danish humanitarian committee was involved in relocating approximately 20,000 to 30,000 children from Vienna to Denmark to help disadvantaged children affected by the severe economic crisis that hit Austria and especially Vienna after WWI. Some of the children, who were transported to Denmark with the Kinderzug, were adopted. Ref: Danish Peace Academy.
