", ”But can not compare with Goebbels”"
"SD paints the democrats as the party in Sweden helped Nazi germany the most during the second world war."
"But in the campaign performed a variety of defects, according to professor of history Klas Åmark."
"– There is a reason to come up with a factual criticism of their claims, " he says to Aftonbladet."
"The sweden democrats today launched a poster campaign in the subway in Stockholm. "
"A message reads: ”It is not the first time that Sossarna help Germany to take over Europe”."
"It was the justice minister, Morgan Johansson, S, that go in the ceiling. He said that it was ”historically are indeed related in Goebbels 'spirit'."
"SD developed the background for his claims on twitter."
"But who has the right? What is true of all the claims?"
"Aftonbladet asked Klas Åmark, professor emeritus of history, the leading expert on Sweden's relation to Nazi germany and nazism, for an analysis."
"He says that there are errors and exaggerations - even at Morgan Johansson. His conclusions are:"
"– the Swedish historiography of mixes reasonably factually based claims with pure factual errors and tendentious interpretations. There is a reason to come up with a factual criticism of their claims, " says Klas Åmark. And adds:" the
"– But you can absolutely not compare them to Goebbels, one of the annihilation of evil, leading the organisers and spokesmen. n "
"Here below" comments Klas Åmark in more detail some of the various assertions that are presented as a basis in the campaign. "
"and SD: ”the social democrats are the party in Sweden, which in the greatest extent, helped nazi germany during the war.”"
"– From december, 1939, there was a unity government in Sweden, with the social democrats, Liberals, Agrarians and people's Party. The social democrats had from the general election in september 1940, the majority in the parliament, they got 53,8% of the votes in the September of that year. But the responsibility for the Swedish policy vis-à-vis Nazi germany was divided between the four parties. "
"and SD: ”They loaned out the train cars,”"
"– the Transit of German troops through Sweden from July 1940 to August 1943 was to a large extent with the Swedish railway, the germans had a shortage of transport resources."
"and SD: ”provided the German armed forces with steel,”"
"– Well, not so much with steel, with iron ore. The Swedish iron ore contained normally around 65 % iron, which was about twice as much as for example the French iron mines. But especially the northern, the ore was also fosforrik, and therefore could not be used to the steel. The Swedish järnmalmsexporten was particularly important to Germany from 1938 to the fall of 1940. Then, Germany had occupied France and were able to take possession of the ore from the French mines in the Alsace Lorraine. Sweden exported about 10 million tonnes of iron ore to Nazi germany in the years 1939-1943, since decreased exports to end in the fall of 1944. "
"SD ”allowed the German trupptransporter through the country, etc”"
" It was a decision of government, but also the social democrats, of course, was partly responsible for trupptransiteringen. More than two million trips made German soldiers, mainly from Norway through Sweden until the transit was terminated in August 1943. Hitler feared an English attack on Norway and that the british would then continue and stop the Swedish järnmalmsexporten to Nazi germany. Therefore held the the germans a very large ockupationsstyrka in Norway, which is not really needed there, and that made greater use of, for example, the eastern front. It was during the long periods of about 300 000 soldiers. With ”trupptransporter” is probably on the transit of division Engelbrecht in juniu002Fjuli 1941. It was a fully stridsutrustad division was transported through Sweden from Charlottenberg to Haparanda, and then put in on the front lines in southern Finland against the Soviets. The three bourgeois parties said yes to the transit, most of the socialist ministers and riksdagsmännen wanted to say no, but the prime minister Per Albin Hansson drove over them and got through the approval of the transit."
"and SD: ”It was the Socialists who demanded that nazi germany would stamp a"
"– The Swedish agreement with Nazi germany to stamp a J in German jews ' passports met in October 1938. Then it was a coalition government between the social democrats and the Agrarians, the minister of justice was bondeförbundaren and rättshistorikern K G Westman, who made himself known as the xenophobic and anti-semitic views. German citizens had the right to travel freely to Sweden on a tourist visa and stay here for three months without a residence permit. The type of entry and was stopped by the J-pass but it was still possible for German jews to get a residence permit in Sweden. During the period from november 1938 to August 1939, applied to approximately 4,200 jews from Nazi germany on a residence permit in Sweden. About 2 500 of them, or approximately 60 per cent had their applications granted. After the outbreak of war in september 1939, Sweden introduced visa requirement for all German citizens, so then särbehandlades no longer jews."
"and SD: ”The socialist government censored also the media who tried to report on the nazi torture camps and concentration camps.”"
" Censorship means prior checking of printed writings. Such was not the case in Sweden during the second world war. However, the government introduced several measures that in retrospect were used against newspapers and publications with content that foreign powers complained of, or could possibly complain about. One of the most high-profile seizures took place in march 1942, when fifteen socialist and liberal newspapers published the same article on torture in Norwegian prisons. The minister of justice Westman defended in parliament the seizure on the grounds that it was grymhetspropaganda (from the Norwegian government in exile in London.)"
