Greenland was Henrik Kauffmann’s triumph

Without a mandate from his home country, and quite single-handedly, a man struck a deal with the USA. This marked the beginning of ­an American presence in Greenland. The agreement was the Greenland Treaty from 1941 and the political rebel was Henrik Kauffmann. A highly dramatic game of diplomacy that now plays on the big screen in the movie “The Good Traitor.”
