Last time I was in Sweden in 2012, I interviewed my mom about her experiences living in Sweden during World War II. The 17-minute interview is embedded here:
In it, she talks about:
- How her grandparents escaped from Norway during the war and came to Sweden
- How they had to deal with shortages of food
- How she tried to smuggle some black market pork on a train
- What it was like to visit Norway after the war was over.
