This one-day symposium will bring three leading historians from Sweden to discuss how neutral Sweden dealt with the war, the question of Jewish refugees and the memory of the war, and repercussions of the Holocaust in Sweden up to the present time. We will also welcome Gören Rosenberg to discuss his book "A Brief Stop on the Road from Auschwitz" as well as representatives from the Embassy of Sweden in Washington, D.C.
Co-sponsorship for the event brings together the Swenson Swedish Immigration Research Center, the Scandinavian Studies program, and the Center for the Study of Judaism and Jewish Culture. Financial support comes from several campus entities as well as the Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities.
