Refugee children in Sweden are falling into coma-like states on learning their families will be deported

According to Sweden the so called “Resignation Syndrome” (uppgivenhetssyndrom in Swedish) was diagnosed with 60 children this year.

For years, Sweden has been reporting a peculiar and unique phenomenon called “Resignation Syndrome”.

The authorities are doing their best in attempting to solve this problem which appears to be unique to Swedish child refugees.

This condition causes otherwise healthy young people to deteriorate into a comatose-like state after learning that they will become deported.

The “Resignation Syndrome” is currently believed to only exist amongst the Swedish refugee population and not those of other Scandinavian countries. The syndrome has been prevalent in Sweden since the early part of this century.

The diagnosed children are left bedridden or require to be moved in wheelchairs. The feeding must be done through a tube.
Tests which gained a response from people in comas did not work on the afflicted children, but other exercises showed they suffered no brain damage. 

It was described by some doctors as “willed dyingand often occurred after families were denied asylum status and thrown into uncertainty. 

A similar phenomenon was observed in Nazi concentration camps, the New Yorker reported, in prisoners who had effectively lost all hope
and given up. 

The “Resignation Syndrome” has been seen as the manifestation of fear, say the doctors. The fear of being returned to their old countries, where they could be unsafe, and also of adjusting to a new society after having become used to Sweden. 

Many of those diagnosed with this syndrome are not victims of the current crisis, but from former Soviet states. Also, many are from the minority groups, such as Romanian gypsies.

Among those who suffer from the syndrome is a young boy called Georgi, who came from Nost Ossetia, Russia. He told the New Yorker magazine that during the months he spent in bed, he had felt as if he were in a glass box with fragile walls, deep in the ocean.

Moving or speaking would cause the glass to shatter and the “water would pour in and kill me” he said.

The only known “cure” for this condition is for the refugee families to be awarded residency permits. Something that was recognized even by the Swedish Board of Health and Wellfare.


To see improvements in the children’s condition takes usually several months after a family has been grated leave to remain.

However, this does not guarantee families of children with the “Resignation Syndrome” will be allowed to stay, especially since Sweden has tightened it’s rules on refugees during the recent years.

Reports exist of deported children still in comatose-like states, several months after they have been returned to their family’s country of origin.

The idea that the condition can be treated by awarding families a residency permit has also been questioned, as critics say it prevents a proper medical approach.

  • Easy solution is to just don’t tell them about it.

  • oddly, these coma like states occur almost immediately after these children GET VACCINATED! Hmmmm gee I wonder what the REAL ANSWER IS!!!

  • Stop accepting refugees into Sweden in the first place and the problem will not exist … in Sweden anyway.

  • well if Nazi concentration camps,which had more perks than any 5 star hotel,were causing prisoners to lose all hope..what can you do about these poor refugees?
    Auschwitz had a swimming pool,art classes,soccer matches,theater,day care,hospital,postal service,bar,brothel,heating and plumbing…they had more to eat than your average German..Seeing Jews declared war on Germany,front page news March 24th 1933…Jews implemented port blockades,no food was coming into Germany,which they relied on in return for exports… Germans were being fire bombed in their own homes,eating out of trash cans,all the while the communist Jews were basically in rural Club-Meds…I can see how the Jews were losing all hope..
    Lucky,endless survivors came out of the “extermination” camps..Of course none of them said much of anything…FOR DECADES…I guess their sufferink was so terrible…

    • You have come up with the answer! set up concentration camps in sweden run by germans and the problem will be over.Or send everyone with this problem and their families back to their own country straight away and it will no longer be swedens problem. Less attacks on swedish women and riots as well! When this gets known to people in the places they come from no more will come and the swedish people will be happy again.These people can go to other arab countries that are not at war so not to have to change things the way wanted by them.

  • Having suffered both chronic fatigue syndrome and a major anxiety disorder, this sounds similiar to symptons I once had, although mine only lasted as long as my anxiety did.

  • If this is not Munchausen by Proxy and the parents aren’t causing this and using the child’s physical state as a Jihad to stay in Sweden…IF….they are not drugging or poisoning their children somehow to accomplish this… ( and this is not new…it is old science. eg. Romeo and Juliet). Many unknown or old recipes that could be responsible for such a physical state do not show up in modern day tests/blood work unless we are specifically looking for them. Resignation syndrome may very well be true and sounds like a strong possibility that it could be Adrenal. Adrenal hormones are responsible for Fight or Flight responses in the body. How long can a young child’s Adrenal function be at such a crazy high state without crashing? The news of return to a War torn land could cause a crash. They are children…something is wrong…Pray for people God Bless
