Thursday, February 6, 2020 8:00 PM Presentation by John B. Simon

Strangers in a Stranger Land tells how the first Jews came to Finland: unlike in the rest of the diaspora, they were neither fleeing persecution nor seeking opportunities but were brought as child soldiers by the Russian Imperial Army. Eventually, they made a place for themselves in the remarkably homogeneous Finnish society. Finland's Jewish citizens all survived the holocaust despite the presence of some 200,000 Nazi soldiers on Finnish soil. Meanwhile, Finnish Jewish soldiers - openly Jewish soldiers - were fighting alongside German troops and sometimes under German command. The story of their survival is unique in the annals of WWII.
