Putin-regime has new campaign publicly naming famous dead Swedes as Nazis or Nazi-sympathizers.
They've got... 2½ of 4 correct.

• Astrid Lindgren, most well known worldwide for Pippi Longstocking, was actively antifascist, with main theme of the written stories being explicitly antiauthoritarian. I'll attach a picture I made in 2016 as a non-literary, on the street example. Absolutely NOT a Nazi or any kind of Fascist.

• Ingmar Bergman, movie/theatre director, has publicly stated to have "admired Hitler" for a decade, but also already during WW2 actively anti-Nazi through plays and movies. Later also generally antiauthoritarian though same.

• Ingvar Kamprad, founder of IKEA, was a member of two actually Nazi parties. Later claiming it was just "being confused". Was also severely anti-labor union, strike-busting and used forced labor.

• King Gustaf V was a personal friend with explicit Nazis, threatened to abdicate if Nazi-Germany's troops couldn't transit through Sweden to occupy Norway and sent private letter of thanks to Hitler, mainly because hated Communists and wanted Communism banned.
