Nazis Threatened Sweden, Report Says

Sat., April 19, 1997

Nazi Germany threatened to attack Sweden if it refused to accept gold plundered from Jews to pay for Swedish iron ore and other materials vital to the Nazis during World War II, a television station said Friday.

According to SVT television, the information came from documents held by Mats Lemne, Sweden’s Central Bank chief in the 1950s. Lemne entrusted the documents to a politician before his death. They have now been sent to Prime Minister Goeran Persson.
