Die schwedische Geheimpolizei – das "Informationsbüro" – die Kommunisten
The commissions on the surveillance and registration of Swedish communists by the military and police secret services have published their reports. Although clear-cut and realistic images of the communist enemy obviously have been lacking, there has been quite some activity by the security forces. Because of dubious suspicion, people engaging in leftwing political affairs – not necessarily sympathising with communism or the Sovjet Union – have been refused or lost their jobs. Both reports leave many questions open, and often they do not even ask the relevant ones. There is the need for another commission combining expertise on methods in historical research and leftwing politics in Sweden.
