The rule (in its broader context) says, before 02:00 on 1945-04-02,
Denmark was 1 hour ahead of GMT, but at 02:00 it went to being 2 hours

I used Gnu date to confirm the reading:
$ TZ=Europe/Copenhagen date -d '1945-04-02 00:59:59 UTC'
Mon Apr 2 01:59:59 CET 1945
$ TZ=Europe/Copenhagen date -d '1945-04-02 01:00:00 UTC'
Mon Apr 2 03:00:00 CEST 1945
