Greenland's Inuits seek Denmark compensation over failed social experiment

Six indigenous Greenlanders taken as children to Denmark in a failed social experiment in 1951 are demanding compensation from the Danish state.

The Inuits, now in their 70s, are the surviving members of the group of 22 children who were removed from their homes to be educated as "little Danes".

When they later returned to Greenland, they were put in an orphanage, and many did not see their families again.

The six survivors each want £28,200 ($37,800), their lawyer says.

The Danish authorities have so far made no public comments on the issue.......https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-59382793
