Discusses the transport to Sweden of 500 Jewish children from Germany, Austria, and Czechoslovakia in 1938-39, and the effects of separation from their parents and refugee status on their lives. Chs. 2 and 3 (pp. 47-105) describe the rise of antisemitism in the above-mentioned countries, especially in Germany. In the 1930s German Jewish children were sometimes sent to Sweden for a holiday in order to remove them from the antisemitic atmosphere. Of ca. 19,000 children who participated in the "Kindertransports" in the late 1930s, 500 were accepted by Sweden. Swedish immigration policy until then had been "remarkably restrictive", but an exception was made due to pressure from the Stockholm Jewish community, which took full responsibility for the refugees, and Britain's example of granting asylum to 10,000 Jewish children. The other chapters deal with the children's reception in Sweden, and results of a survey (including a questionnaire and interviews) conducted amongst 500 survivors.
