Struggle against the throes : A study about how the Social Democratic party and SSU acted against nazism, fascism and communism in Växjö 1932-1945 (English)
Abstract [en]

2017 marks the hundred year anniversary since the Social Democratic party was split in two in 1917, when the youth party, as well as several leftish socialistic members, formed the Communist party. In the aftermath of the first world war communism rose in Sweden, Spain and Germany. Eventually, fascism and nazism began to rise as a political power as well. These ideologies put the Swedish Social democratic party at stake. This essay has focused on how the local Social democrats acted at a local level, when it came to these political powers. Elements of conflict and consensus, as well as class formation are lifted to find out how Växjö’s Social democrats reacted to communism, nazism and fascism. The result showed that the reaction was almost completely non-violent, although still in opposition. Attempts were made to cooperate with the local communists, with varied success. They united against fascism and to aid them under fascist oppression. The class formation were partly unitary as of this, but mostly fragmented, when the communists were looked at as dividers and Moscow agents with revolutionary goals. This did not work out with the Social democratic reformist agenda, why the communist was widely condemned in 1939. The political right often criticised the Social democrats for their communist encounters. As to this the local Social democratic press did not trust the bourgeoisie to maintain the democracy if they were given the chance to overthrow the Social democratic government with help from the fascists.
