During WWII, Nazis were on the hunt for gold and prizes won by Jewish scientists. Scientist Niels Bohr, had both of these things. In his Copenhagen lab were two Nobel Peace Prize medals made of 23-carat, solid gold. Both were won by German-Jewish scientists, and sent to Denmark for safekeeping. It would mean a death sentence for Bohr if the Nazis found these prizes. Bohr found a way to keep them safe without losing his life.
