Judar i det svenska folkhemmet. Minne och identitet i Judisk krönika 1948-1958
Sammanfattning: The thesis deals with the queswtion of which historic events have been emphasised amog Jewish people in Sweden after the Second World War. The founding of Israel is the point of departure and the termins ad quem is ten years further. The basic source material for the study is Judisk krönika ("Jewish Cronicle"), a periodical which was launched in 1932. In the 1950s Judisk krönika assumed a special position as Swedish Zionism's public journalistic channel for the Jewish cultural struggle, both in political and more general terms, and not only among the media of the 1950s but in the moder´n Swedish Jewish tradition generally. Judisk krönika is alanysed from the point of view of how the history of Zionism was retold in Judisk krönika. The prevailing rhetoric was anchored in post-war Swedish views of such concepts as democracy, freedom and social progrfess. Above all, Judisk krönika confirms the notion of community as guiding principle. In the course of the 1950s, Swedish Zionist activity constituted a mixture of philanthrophy and religion, supported optimistic view of the future and conviction that men and women in Sweden could contribute to the making of "a better world". In Sweden, the Zionist movement downplayed the boundaries between belonging to a nation, a religious group, a national organisation, a voluntary association, and a community dependent on history and birthright.
