This page used to host a wiki-database that was created in 2009. It hosted information about child abuse in residential settings. It was hacked in 2021 and due to raising costs of hosting of websites in Denmark, it will not be restored.
While the wiki is gone, we refer to a blog containing many of the facilities, which used to be described on this page.

Many victims have stepped forward with their brave testimonies about what happened to them. As of 2020 you can google #BreakingCodeSilence and find more.
