This monument was set up in Växjö, in memory of Danuta Danielsson, a Swedish woman who showed true civil bravery. It happened in 1985 during the demonstration of the Nordic Reich Party, a group of aggressive people who support Nazi ideas.

While other people tried not to look at this demonstration and tried to steer clear of it, Danuta hit one of the men with her handbag on his head. This inspired other people and everyone started to gather to make the neo-Nazis leave. In the end, the neo-Nazis had to hide in a bathroom at a train station and wait for the police.

After that, a lot of cards and statues with Danuta and her handbag were made and sold in the city. She is now associated with a person who is not willing to just watch when something bad and unfair is happening.
