At a time when the Nazis were hanging on desperately for survival and while chaos reigned in Germany, Count Folke Bernadotte, the Swedish Red Cross and the Danish government conducted negotiations with Heinrich Himmler. Until I read this book I did not know the story of the white buses and the determination of those who wanted to save others from the death camps.

You can play as a group and solve the clues together as you walk, or you can split into smaller groups/teams and compete against the others.

Knowing the Germans were about to set up death camps, the Chinese Consul in Vienna issued exit visas to thousands of Jews against the instruction of his superiors risking his own life and career. Someone one day will make a serious film about the same issue of Jews fleeing to China before and during WWII.The first edition of this work was published in Sweden in 2002 as Vi ker till Sverige: De vita bussarna 1945 (W e Are Going to Sweden: The White Buses in 1945). Each bus was purposefully painted entirely white except for the Red Cross emblem on the side so that they would not be mistaken for military targets. The Swedish Red Cross expedition to the German concentration camps in March-April 1945 was the largest rescue effort inside Germany during WWII.
