Sweden is a rich country partly due to its WW2 actions. Well known and respected author-journalist Maria-Pia Bothius tells of transit shipments of German troops through Sweden to Norway and Finland, iron ore exports to Germany, Swedish censorship and other examples showing that Swedish neutrality amounted to support for the German. She also remebers us about Swedish businessmen, representing "neutral" banks and corporations, who cooperated with their counterparts in Nazi-Germany; specifically, there is a focus on the Wallenberg family and their Stockholm Enskilda Bank. Cloaking, or hiding the true Nazi business ownership from Allies is noted, as is the way neutral banks, including Enskilda, helped to dispose of assets looted from occupied territory or Jews. Plus ça (Sweden) change, plus ça c'est la même chose.
