Download PDF for this date

The Swedish Government will make an important statement in parliament shortly after the new year in connection with plans to help Jews persecuted by the Nazis, it is reported today in the Svenska Dagbladot.

The paper reveals that negotiations are now being conducted between Sweden and Norway regarding means of rescuing Norwegian Jews from deportation to Nazi territories in Eastern Europe. It is impossible at present to reveal the details of these negotiations, but when they are concluded, the public will be informed, the Swedish newspaper writes. It emphasizes that the Swedish press is maintaining silence about the negotiations “in the interest of the unhappy victims.”
