"We will be judged in our own time and in the future by measuring
the aid that we, inhabitants of a free and fortunate country, gave
to our brethren in this time of greatest disaster." This
declaration, made shortly after the pogroms of November 1938 by the
Jewish communities in Sweden, was truer than anyone could have
forecast at the time. Pontus Rudberg focuses on this sensitive
issue - Jewish responses to the Nazi persecutions and mass murder
of Jews. What actions did Swedish Jews take to aid the Jews in
Europe during the years 1933-45 and what determined their policies
and actions? Specific attention is given to the aid efforts of the
Jewish Community of Stockholm, including the range of activities in
which the community engaged and the challenges and opportunities
presented by official refugee policy in Sweden.
