Compilation from Swedish Jewish Literature
by Erik Hirschfeld, Sweden
Warm thanks to Erik Hirschfeld, who has kindly donated this very useful database to the JewishGen Scandinavia SIG and The All Scandinavian Database. He has accompanied the database with the following comments:
"It is a compilation of individuals mentioned in Swedish-language literature on Jews. It is not in any way complete. I will - time permitting - update it at intervals. Names might be spelled differently. If you find errors, wish to add records or require information in which context they are mentioned, please email me: email@example.com."
Let me underscore that this data is not only of interest for researchers with interest in Sweden!
It contains information about Jews born elsewhere, immigrating to and/or emigrating from Sweden, - e.g. there are some born in Poland, Lithuania, etc., and others who moved to e.g. Denmark, Norway and USA.
Abbreviations for the books mentioned:
