I entirely agree with Cathie on this point. It is certainly of interest.

Douglas: possibly you could write a short piece on this site summarising what the larger article the re-direction is leading to please? Alternatively, perhaps you could post an appropriate photograph illustrating that particular thread now and again?

I think all the members of this forum have done this now and again when posting their own articles to this site. That way it also gives a better opportunity for members and other 'guests' to post a comment or add something to the WW2issue in question if they wish.

All the best.

Yes, I agree. For 3 consecutive months all we have had is a link which takes away traffic from this blog.

A school building was fenced off with barbed wire in Espoo, Finland in 1908. Swedish C.G. Avellan fenced off school buildings with barbed wire, in order to ban children the access to a school.

The Swedish government was responsible for the most iron ore the Nazis received. Kiruna-Gällivare ore fields in Northern Sweden were all important to Nazi Germany.

These massive deliveries of iron ore and military facilities from Sweden to Nazi Germany lengthened World War II. Casualties of the war have been estimated at 20 million killed in Europe. How many of them died due to Sweden's material support to Nazi Germany, is not known.
