Sweden Looks into Resident Nazi War Criminals

And Then Did NOTHING

A tribute to the "look the other way" culture, not particular to Sweden, but held in more regard there than in its Nordic neighbours.

Sweden defaults to "statute of limitations", and so looked the other way, concerning escaped Baltic Nazi war criminals then resident in Sweden.

Pretty sad stuff.

https://www.jcpa.org/phas/phas-zuroff-f02.htm

""The idea of legislation that would retroactively change the legal position for the war criminals of the Second World War was strongly repudiated by Sweden as early as during the period of limitation. The three lawyers have therefore come to the conclusion that a change in this position must be regarded as out of the question.""

It must be exhausting for an entire nation to simply stand for nothing.
