Finnish authorities made two trials to get 150 Jewish refugee to Sweden in the end of 1942. Especially ambassador Wasastjerna in Stockholm was active. Those trials were rejected by Swedish authorities who, prime minister P.A.Hansson included, didn't accept Jews from Finland. Refugees from Norway were anyhow accepted.
There is reason to believe, that this had a connection to wake-up to holocaust. Three members of the inner circle (Ryti, Tanner and Mannerheim) had unofficial channels to West. Two months earlier Finland's policy according to political commissars and Jewish POWs had changed.
Book concentrates to the issue only, without general holocaust description. Size 15.000 words, 23 pictures (several wartime documents), 43 sources and 93 references.

This work is the culmination of many years research into the factual position of the British forces in September 1940, based on records held largely in the National Archives and Imperial War Museum. It draws heavily on the excellent work of Peter Schenk to provide much of the German plans and dispositions. It does not prophesise an outcome but should leave the reader with a better, concise, awareness of the facts.
