This is the second edition of this widely acclaimed 1996 work which documents the dramatic shift in policy in Sweden with respect to the Holocaust from one of initial indifference to one of almost unprecedented activism immediately before and during World War II. The book explores how Sweden, as a neutral power, overcame bureaucratic resistance and used diplomacy in an effort to lessen the effects of the Holocaust.
