En av årets höjdpunkter
Stipendiet utgår ifrån boken om Syklubben, som jag just nu skriver och gör research för.
Sten K. Johnsons presentationstext: During the autumn of 1943, more than 7,000 Jews fled from occupied Denmark to neutral Sweden over Öresund. Their escape was possible thanks to refugee and resistance organizations, who opposed Nazi persecution of the Danish people’s Jewish friends and acquaintances. One of the organizations taking part was the Sewing club. It consisted of Danish police officers and a group of Swedish men from Helsingborg. Together they saved 1,400 people. The only rules they set up were; we shall earn no money from this and we must save as many as we can.
Stipendiesumma: 130.000 kronor
