Do you think they will bury him in a flat pack? And will the walk to his grave be like walking around a maze.

Let the man rest in peace.
He first started Ikea selling door-to-door, and it was a struggle.
But, with his persistence, he built one of Sweden's biggest companies, creating jobs worldwide!

But what was admirable, his very humble life.

The man was a solid supporter of Hitler and the Nazis, he was also one of Sweden's biggest tax evaders as well. The company lost all credibility and respect when it stopped selling Swedish made products.

"January 1933 Hitler was appointed chancellor,"

Kamprad was six years old then...What support could he give Hitler at that age???

He was born in 1926

Kamprad had joined England's pro-fascist New Swedish Movement (Nysvenska Rörelsen) in 1942, at the age of 16.
Kamprad had raised funds for and recruited members to said group at least as late as September 1945.
Swedish security service created a file on Kamprad already in 1943 titled "Nazi"

Exactly. The hundreds and thousands of jobs he has created through Ikea.
And the million of homes that were able to find affordable furniture.

What was life before Ikea.
He was a legend.

Yes he supported it when he was a kid as he was influenced by his german grandmother, as most kids do, follow their families. In 94 he apologised directly stating how stupid he was. Stop slagging him off. !70,000 workers of all colours and nations thank him .

Why don't you Swede bashers write about the fact that Hitler was a well respected and admired politician by the European politicians and royalty of the day...

America too thought well of him and then he lost it all...

Too bad for a lot of people, and if any of you think Sweden broke any rules of neutrality by supporting him, then the victors would have wreaked hell on Sweden when they won the war...

Sweden didn't and they agreed...End of story...

You don't get it, neutrals have no enemies...

Don't you think the Germans loved the idea of Sweden giving ships to the English to carry war materials to be used against them, and what about the ball bearings for the Rolls Royce Merlin engines that made the Spitfire such a deadly foe to the Luftwaffe, etc., etc.???

Don't forget the German/Italian American internment camp detainees, nobody remembers because they were not people of different colour/race, some were held longer than the Japanese!!!

When the Swedish/Norwegian union dissolved it was agreed that neither country would have a military presence along their common border, and besides the Norwegians under Quisling allowed the Germans to cross their border into Sweden!!!

German troops coming from Finland/Russia were unarmed at the Swedish border...

Please tell me where they use ball bearings in a Rolls Royce Merlin engine.

Connecting rods bearings are steel-backed lead-bronze-alloy bearing shells. The small end of each rod houses a floating phosphor bronze bush.
Crankshaft main bearings are split mild-steel shells lined with lead bronze alloy.

I see you have no idea of engines.

You might like to be informed that the Germans were the BIGGEST buyer of bearings from SKF for their tracked vehicles.

So how credible is the rest of your rant.

All these shafts run in roller bearings, the propeller shaft having, in addition, a thrustable ball bearing, enabling the engine to be used with tractor (pulling) or ...
