Swedish aid to Norway during the German occupation. Women are dipping needles and making crafts. Throughout the war years, a number of Norwegians fled, mostly across the border to Sweden. These included Norwegian Jews, political activists, and others who had reason to fear for their lives. The Germans set up border patrols to stop these flights across the very long border, but locals who knew the woods found ways to bypass them. These "border pilots", and people who hid refugees in their homes, were among those in the resistance movement who took the greatest risks. Swedish authorities accepted the refugees and ensured their safety once they had crossed the border, but did little to facilitate their escape. Refugees were often confined to camps where only their basic needs were met. About 50,000 Norwegians fled to Sweden during the war.
