Aftonbladet 1933-45 - en studie av uppseendeväckande åsikter under en omvälvande tid
2002 (Swedish)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year))Student thesis
Abstract [en]

Aftonbladet is today the largest newspaper in Sweden. Through a number of campaigns the last few years against racism, nazism and xenophobia, it has become a weapon in the fight against injustices and for a better, more equal society. But what many people in Sweden do not know is that during a large part of the period 1933-45, a time when nazism or anti-nazism was the big question around the world, Aftonbladet supported Nazi-Germany. In this essay I have studied Aftonbladet’s views by looking at how it described some of the important events during this time. The result of this study shows that all through the 30s and in the early 40s the paper was very much in favour of Nazi-Germany. It supported the conquering of new territories, showed understanding for the nazi policy against the Jews and blamed the war on the allies, especially Britain. But the views that Aftonbladet expressed were met with disapproval from a large number of people in Sweden and in 1943 a whole new editorial staff was appointed to the political section and the views of the paper changed dramatically. Aftonbladet now supported the allies and was very negative in its opinions of Nazi-Germany.
