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 documented the
assisted 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 the war. 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
This is a one-off announcement of this publication - printed for no profit.
