How Denmark Destroyed Greenland: Brief History of Denmark's Colonialism in Greenland is a 25 minute video by Norwegian history YouTuber Fredda. The Danish colonial legacy has been in the news lately, as 67 Kalaallit women have sued the Danish government [NYT, archive link] for having run a program where Kalaallit women had intrauterine devices inserted without their consent in the 1960s and 70s, which possibly continued for long afterwards. About a year ago, the BBC's Elaine Jung made a 25 minute documentary about the Kalaallit women affected by the program, called Greenland's Lost Generation which focuses on psychologist and campaigner Naja Lyberth, who was one of those who had an IUD inserted as a teenager.
