Brothers-in-arms with Nazi Germans: Jews in Finland during World War II

Start: Feb 4, 2016 5:30:00 PM

The history of the Jews in Finland during WWII is unusual. Between 1941 and 1944, when Finland joined Germany in the assault against the Soviet Union, Jews found themselves as brothers-in-arms with Nazi Germans. Though living under fear of deportations, Finland’s indigenous Jewish population escaped the Holocaust. Simo Muir will tell this story from a historical and cultural perspective focusing also on the unique Yiddish- and Swedish-speaking cultural scene during this peculiar period.
