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 elsewhere.
