The Jewish population in Finland was not significantly affected by World War II. The Finish army chose to fight with the Germans instead of against them and for this reason they were spared from persecution. At least one Finnish army camp included a make-shift synagogue so soldiers could worship as they pleased while fighting with the Nazi army. This phenomenon is thought to be so rare; Finland may have been the only army to have such a religious freedom. Today there are about 1,500 Jews remaining in Finland.
