Abstract [en]

In the years 1941-1948, thousands of people escaped across the Baltic Sea from eastern Europe to Sweden, primarily from the Baltic states but also from the USSR. On the basis of newly declassified Soviet correspondence through encrypted cables between the Soviet foreign ministry and the Soviet legation in Stockholm for the years 1944-1947, this article addresses the Soviet-Swedish diplomatic negotiations over a number of these refugees. The article also asks whether the 1947 Andrei Vyshinskii note on Raoul Wallenberg should be understood not only as a Soviet attempt to put an end to the Wallenberg case, but also to acquire a change in Sweden's handling of Soviet requests for the extradition of refugees.
