Swedes in the Gulag according to prisoner of war cards in the RossArchiv (Moscow)

                                    

The following prisoners were deemed “Swedish” at the top of their prisoner of war cards by those interrogating them at the time of their capture/arrest or corresponding to information on their personal interviews upon arrival in a camp.  These cards are on file in the Military Archive (RossArchiv) in Moscow and were released thanks to the cooperation of the Federation of Russia’s Archival services.  The detailed information offered below has been edited to provide general biographical information for identification purposes.

 

Where citizenship is other than Swedish, the assumption is that these are Swedish nationals. Of the 116 “Swedish” prisoners the Soviets acknowledge as holding in captivity, 42 died in captivity while an additional 41 were repatriated – leaving 33 requiring further information.  Those whose name and/or profile corresponds to the report of an eyewitness testimony are indicated by a box.  Based on current data, these are the prisoners whose files merit further review. 

 

Raoul Wallenberg’s prisoner-of-war card, a copy of which was handed over to his next of kin in 1989, does not presently appear in this group of cards.  This raises the question of the possible existence of another group of Swedes, referring to highly controversial political prisoners, including diplomats.   The fact that a number of “Swedish” prisoners’ names, provided by eyewitness testimony, are not on this list would also raise the question of other Swedes who have a different form of classification.  (See “Other Swedes in the Gulag”).
