The book 'Pa vag till Israel' was written by my uncle Emil Glu(e)ck who
was the prime mover of the Hachshara in Sweden, and
documentedtheassisted migration of Jewish youth >from Nazi Germany, the
planning and organization of their agricultural training, Jewish
education and continued migration to Palestine. It also described the
work to rehabilitate and reintegrate young Jewish survivors >from the
Polish and German concentration camps in the aftermath of thewar. Emil
was able in later years to meet again some of the chalutzim and gives in
the book a short biography of a few of them.
The English translation 'Hachshara and Youth Aliyah in Sweden
1933-1948' has a full index of all names mentioned.
It was translated, edited and produced in In 2016 by a number of Emil's
family, for the benefit of the family, but we feel that the story, told
by those who were intimately involved, should have a wider audience. It
is now available at cost on-line >from a print-on-demand company or
