Abstract [en]

Sweden’s role during the Second World War has been a matter that has been under much debate since the war’s end in 1945. The debate has however ebbed and flowed and established a discourse that Sweden was forced to give in to German demands and did so to avoid conflict that would have severely damaged Sweden. However, in 1991 a Swedish journalist Maria-Pia Boëthius published a book known as Heder och Samvete in which she explained that the Swedish concessions to Germany during the war were made out of profit rather than giving in to German demands. This sparked a debate that ended with the establishment that Sweden compromised and even broke its neutrality in favor to gain profit from the war. This project investigates how Swedish schoolbooks have chosen to depict this piece of history and whether Maria-Pia Boëthius’s book has influenced them or not.
