Did the director of Sweden’s Red Cross write a letter to Himmler that opposed the transfer of Jews to Sweden? Or was the letter that was known as the Bernadotte letter, which was signed by Count Folke Benadotte, a forgery - and whose typewriter was it written on? Arto Koskinen gets so deep into his research that he’s sometimes not sure if the events are all a dream.
Koskinen meets historian Gerald Fleming and producer Jan Wellmann. We also hear from historians Yehuda Bauer and Sir Hugh Trevor-Roper, journalist Ulf Brandell and Felix Kersten’s son, Arno Kersten about the different views on the Bernadotte letter.
