After their crash landing in Malmö, Sweden on June 21, 1944, my great uncle Charle Seth and his B-24 crew stayed in the Grand Hotell, in Rättvik, Sweden.
To the right is a photo of the hotel where they were put up, and some other images related to their stay.
They stayed there until early December, 1944, when they were able to be transported back to the States.
