If you think you might not have ancestors from Sweden, there have been Jews in Sweden since the early 1700’s. albeit a small population.  Sweden opened its doors to Jews during WWII and again in 1956 when Jews were fleeing Hungary and then again when fleeing Communists in 1968. According  to the Jewish Virtual Library  the Jewish population increased tremendously between 1850 and 1920 due to immigration from Russia and Poland. The population reached nearly 6,500 in 1920. Small groups of German, Austrian, and Czech Jews were allowed to immigrate to Sweden during the 1930's. Once the Nazi brutalities were known Sweden opened its doors to Jews. In 1942, Sweden allowed the immigration of 900 Norwegian Jews. In October 1943, Sweden gave asylum to more than 8,000 Danish Jews, the whole Danish Jewish community, which came to Sweden via small fishing boats. The Jewish population doubled  between 1945-1970.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page

Bruce Drake
 

As if suffering through the horrors of the Nazi occupation was not enough, many of those who survived grappled with sorrow and loss when they returned to their home towns and found little or nothing left of the people and places they had known. “Dabrowa without Jews,” from the Yizkor book of Dabrowa Gornicza in Poland, is Juda Parasol’s account of returning to the town where he was born after a 15 year absence. He had been expelled to Siberia and, while there, received a last letter from his father wishing the family could be together again. But they had all died in Auschwitz. “Now I am standing in front of my father's house, and tears of murdered blood wash the windows,” Parasol laments. “The doors in front of me are locked and a cold, distant wind blows from them. The heart no longer wants to believe that here once lived Jews.”
