Introduction to Lost Voices

February 29, 2024March 1, 2024
The Northern Jewish Cemetery in Stockholm is home to row upon row of small, simple tombstones. These are the graves of the Jews who survived the Holocaust and came to Sweden after the end of the Second World War in 1945, but who died here shortly after their arrival.

Their voices have been lost, but their memory lives on. Who were they, and what can be told about their lives? Welcome to join a 30 minute introduction where we tell the stories of these lost voices.

We are keeping their memory alive by telling their stories. The memory of who they were, where they came from and what happened to them. The memory of people, most of them young, from different backgrounds, different places, who all suffered Nazi atrocities simply because they were Jewish.
