Ingvar Kamprad, founder IKEA is a legendary figure in his own way. Most of all, he became famous for his stinginess and the ability to make money literally from nothing. But it turns out that's not all.
Interesting facts about the businessman were published in her book by the Swedish journalist Elisabeth Aasbrink. She managed to find evidence that in the early 40s of the last century, the Swedish state security authorities opened a case against Ingvar as an active participant in the Nazi movement. The then very young entrepreneur was actively recruiting new members of the movement in Sweden, which was a neutral country during the Second World War.
However, Ingvar had nothing to do directly with the NDAP. We are talking about the small-town movement of the extreme right-wing SSS (Svensk Socialistisk Samling).
Ingvar himself did not deny his involvement with the Nazis. I just decided to attribute everything to the mistakes of youth, they say I was young, I didn’t understand much. However, there is evidence that he did not change his worldview even decades after the end of the war.
