All the volumes in this series are in Swedish. Den 26 april anordnade Samtidshistoriska institutet tillsammans med forskningsprojektet Levande arkiv: The ritualized memory of genocide has been a cornerstone of Roma political mobilization during at least the last three decades.
A uniqueness paradigm has been developing for some time, applying a memorial discourse inspired by the Jewish Holocaust model. While paralleling each other in time, the mass murders of Jews and Roma during the Second World War differed on several points. In the General Government of the Occupied Polish Territories and the territories occupied by Nazi Germany after Operation Barbarossa, the persecution of Roma took place largely in local initiatives.
Consequently, the Nazi policies varied considerably, leading to territories in which Roma were annihilated and those in which about half of the Roma population survived. Considerable differences could Huvudstatens samtidshistoriska museum appear within Huvudstatens samtidshistoriska museum same administrative unit.
The picture that appears from the available documents also diverges from survivor testimonies and general accounts of the persecution of Roma as being similar and parallel to "Huvudstatens samtidshistoriska museum" of Jews.
Roma were present in Lemberg throughout the Nazi occupation and the authorities were aware of their whereabouts.
Roma were not confined to the ghetto, but many, along with Poles and Ukrainians, remained within the territory of the ghetto, parts of which had constituted areas of Roma settlement in Lemberg since the mid nineteenth century. Altogether, several hundred Roma lived in Lemberg, and their treatment by the local courts was different from that of Jews, bearing more similarity to the way in Huvudstatens samtidshistoriska museum Polish and Ukrainian cases were handled.
Over the past two decades the idea of mental maps has been adopted by historians in analyzing the construction and dissolution of historical regions, the world views of political elites, and patterns of dominance and subalternity. Despite the resonance the concept of mental maps has had in several disciplines, an international multi-disciplinary conversation on mental maps with an emphasis on cultural patterns
Huvudstatens samtidshistoriska museum still in its earliest stages.
The present special journal issue addresses this situation by bringing together scholars from the fields of history, geography, economics, anthropology, and linguistics, and by using a variety of quantitative and qualitative research methods. The workshop was arranged by the research project Spaces of Expectation: The illegal database comprised a register of 4, persons of Romani descent, more than 1, of whom were children living all over Sweden.
This news understandably elicited horrified reactions in Sweden and throughout the world. But how exceptional is the concept of such a register to Sweden? Since the mids, theNazi regime concerned itself with the systematic registration and identificationof Roma. At the Copenhagen Interpol Conference participating states backedthe initiative proposed by the German police regarding the creation of aninternational registry of Roma.
It had been easier to classify Jews for recordsheld by religious communities were readily available to the state. Many Roma inEurope were nomadic and ID-less.
The study focuses on measures ofidentification and registration of Roma undertaken in sovereign Sweden and therole of experts and census takers in transnational context. On 25 September, the government of Sweden ordered inventory of Roma and Travellers. The Barents and the Baltic Sea Region. Pohjois-Suomen historiallinen yhdistys, On September 25,the government of Sweden ordered a census of Roma and Travellers in the country. The mapping of these groups was to serve as a first step towards solving the
Huvudstatens samtidshistoriska museum "Gypsy problem.
On the basis of studies undertaken in fully sovereign Sweden during the World War II period, the author of this article clarifies the role "experts" played in the "scientific" legitimization of the registration process.
This anthology studies of Stalinism in the ethnic and religious borderlands of the Soviet Union. The authors not only cover hitherto less researched geographical areas, but have also addressed new questions and added new source material.
Most of the contributors to this anthology use a micro-historical approach. With this approach, it is not the entire area of the country, with millions of separate individuals that are in focus but rather particular and cohesive ethnic and religious communities. Micro-history does not mean ignoring a
Huvudstatens samtidshistoriska museum perspective. What happened on the local level had an all-Union context, and communism was a European-wide phenomenon.
The chapters of the book are case studies on various minority groups, both ethnic and religious. In this way, the book gives a more complex picture of the causes and effects of the state-run mass violence during Stalinism. These scholars represent various disciplines: Little empirical research has considered the way in which macro-regions are perceived outside academic and political circles.
Such studies alone can determine what regional narratives mean for the wider public, and the extent to which they coincide with region-building images produced by elites. article examines the mental maps of high school seniors in 10 cities in the Baltic Sea and Mediterranean regions, focusing upon their perception and knowledge Huvudstatens samtidshistoriska museum other countries in those areas. Despite efforts at region building since the Cold War, the two regions remain divided on mental maps.
Students have little knowledge of countries across the sea from their own, although such knowledge is generally greater among those from coastal and particularly island locations.
A comparison with maps constructed by Gould in reveals that the perception of countries within one's own region among Italian and Swedish students has become more negative over the last 50 years. Blomqvist's article holds that nationalism in the socialist labour movement did not suddenly manifest itself as Europe went to war in In Sweden, patriotic ideas from the French Revolution and radical liberalism heavily influenced the early labour movement and contributed to the development of a socialist patriotism.
As a twin of socialist internationalism, this left-wing working-class nationalism centred on the question Who is the nation?
With few intellectual resources of its own in its early years, the young socialist movement in Sweden had to rely on popular liberal education. Accordingly, knowledge from the modern natural sciences and anthropology was imported with its ideas of human races as kernels of nationality. Academics who subsequently joined the socialist movement tried to interpret racial science and eugenics to the advantage of the working class and for the sake of social reform.
Together with socialist patriotism, this attempt developed into a racialized message on the anthropological value of Swedish workers as opposed to both the bourgeois elites and foreign low-paid workers and strikebreakers.
In its more extreme versionas represented by a Huvudstatens samtidshistoriska museum Swedish social democratit turned older stereotypes of Jews into a racist antisemitic discourse against those who were believed to be the enemies of Swedish labour. The combination of socialist patriotism, racism and antisemitism, however, was challenged by other interpretations and experiences.
Huvudstatens samtidshistoriska museum to a lack of source material for the first campaign in — the focus is on the years — Networks of German immigrants within the British and Foreign Bible Society played a pivotal role on both occasions. Outstanding among them was Ernst August Schwabe, minister of one of the German churches in London Huvudstatens samtidshistoriska museum a native of Erfurt. The study shows how the transnational relief effort was organized, the way civil societies in London and Erfurt were interlinked through the aid campaign, and why the Erfurt committee of distribution failed in its trans-regional role.
The provision of aid illustrates the diverging interests of donors in immediate emergency relief and of recipients in long-term use of the appropriated resources.
The article examines the post-revolutionary rearrangement in Europe by "Huvudstatens samtidshistoriska museum" on the separation of Finland from Sweden. Inthe eastern part of the Swedish kingdom became a grand duchy within the autocratically ruled Russian empire.
Both Finland and Sweden experienced the constitutional moment which characterised the post-revolutionary and post-Napoleonic Europe, but in very different ways. The Swedish Diet enacted a new
Huvudstatens samtidshistoriska museum constitution while the Finnish Diet gave its oath to the new emperor, who promised to maintain the laws, privileges and rights of the country. In the context of imperial dependency and a lack of established forums for public debate, the article analyses how the issue of political representation was made public in Finland during the first decade of Russian rule.
The analysis is based on the ways in which Huvudstatens samtidshistoriska museum official newspaper described the new political situation of Finland and reported on political circumstances and parliamentary life in other countries. It is argued that the publication of news from abroad can be seen as an important way of keeping the issue of political representation alive in Finland. It was also a channel for the reception of political concepts.
The study discusses the Finnish case in relation to political circumstances in Sweden. The comparative angle draws attention to complex features of the formation of a new polity and a reformation of an old.
"Huvudstatens samtidshistoriska museum" A Global History of Consumer Co-operation since Brill Academic Publishers, "Huvudstatens samtidshistoriska museum" This chapter deals with co-operative ambitions to create institutions that would establish international co-operative trade.
This implied stimulating trade between the national co-operative wholesales, or more ambitiously, the creation of an international co-operative business organization. Free trade as a trade policy and as an approach to internationalism was a condition for the realization of international co-operative trade. Protectionism was not an option. But the very notion of free trade, and the ways in which co-operators have related to it, has been subject to subtle shifts and changes.
In the chapter, we follow the endeavours of co-operators to agree on institutions for co-operative international trade and thereby also their discussion regarding free trade policy. The period covered is the first half of the twentieth century but focus is on the inter-war period.
Hur gick besluten till? Vad var syftet med reformerna? Lars Leijonborg FPf. West European leaders had good reasons to oppose US Vietnam war policy. It threatened to alter the global balance of power while igniting unrest at home. Such turbulence led to a radicalized political atmosphere domestically. In many West European countries the new radical left the older Socialist and Communist parties in favor of more radical political alternatives.
In Sweden the Social Democratic government struggled to maintain a workable relationship with Washington while at the same time placating domestic anti-war opinion — thus preventing this issue from being hijacked by the far left. How did the Swedish Social Democrats resolve this dilemma?
Although this is the most written-about episode in Swedish postwar diplomacy, this is the first book to scrutinize the impact of Sweden's Vietnam Huvudstatens samtidshistoriska museum policy on its domestic politics.
