In the grounds of Stockholm’s Great Synagogue there is a set of train tracks that lead out of the grounds to the Raul Wallenberg monument. In between the train tacks are stones from the ghetto in Budapest, a gift from that city to the Stockholm Jewish community/synagogue.
A memorial to the victims of the Holocaust is engraved on the 42-meter wall leading from the entrance of The Great Synagogue to the Jewish Community office building. It was inaugurated in 1998 by Carl XVI Gustav, King of Sweden, and lists 8500 victims, relatives of Jews residing in Sweden.
I reckon my favorite capital is Stockholm and one of the reasons I like it so much is that it is located on Sweden’s south-central east coast, where Lake Mälaren meets the Baltic Sea. . So wherever you look, you always see water.
