Example Sentence (Quote)

" Actually, the Swedish genealogists were so good that I found out more than I wanted to about my Swedish ancestors: one of them in the 17th century was executed for having embezzled funds from an estate for which he was the steward... As for the name Rehnquist, I am quite uncertain as to its origin. Under the Swedish patronymic system of naming, my grandfather and his brothers would have been named Anderson, since Anders was the name of their father. Quist in Swedish means branch, I am told. For example, Lindquist means lime branch or linden branch, and Palmquist means palm branch. The best I can come up with is that the rehn in my name refers to a small village near the farm on which my grandfather grew up. It has been said that Sweden's loss has been America's gain, and I think this is true. Swedish immigrants and their descendents have contributed a great deal to America and it is worthwhile to remember our Swedish heritage." - Sweden

Example Sentence (Quote)

" Before the war, Jews from Nazi Germany sought asylum in Sweden. Although a few were accepted, the majority were rejected due to anti-semitism and discriminatory racial ideology prevalent in Sweden at that time. Afraid of the rise in anti-semitism, leaders of the Jewish community in Sweden supported a restrictive asylum policy. The most important reason that many Jews were rejected was due to the fact that the Swedish government strove to avoid conflict with Nazi Germany." - Sweden

Example Sentence (Quote)

"In reality, economic xenophobia and ordinary xenophobia always end up colliding. The nastier of Europe's anti-immigrant and ethno-nationalist movements argue that ethnic solidarity is necessary to preserve the welfare state. Among ordinary Swedes, the topic of immigrants' non-Nordic people's relatively high rates of unemployment and welfare dependency is politically charged." - Sweden

Example Sentence (Quote)

"In Sweden, diversity is not their strength. Homogeneity is... Sweden's more liberal policy toward immigrants may be judged in no small part by the Stockholm riots of 2013." - Sweden

Example Sentence (Quote)

" International comparisons have shown that no other OECD country performs worse than Sweden in terms of integrating immigrants in the labor market... The unemployment rate is 18 percent among immigrants, compared to 7 percent among the native born. The explanation is hardly that immigrants enjoy being unemployed. Studies show that unemployed immigrants in Sweden search far more intensely for work than unemployed Swedes, but often have their job applications ignored. Due to low employment rates, 57 percent of welfare payments in Sweden in 2012 went to immigrant households." - Sweden
