Sweden is a fascinating country and has been one of the great powerhouses throughout the ages, but in the 1800s large areas of the country experienced famine causing major migration to the United States. I will begin this session with my first experience with Swedish culture, and a trip to Minnesota at Christmas with a roommate. I will focus on some of the contributions of these immigrants to the US and then take you on my two excursions into the old country. First, I will go across the narrow bay where Knonborg or Hamlet’s castle. My second extended trip is through Gothenburg and overland. We will visit the home of Alfred Nobel, the bank famous for the Stockholm syndrome, and even may visit an Ikea factory. Sweden today will be discussed.
