Abstract [en]

This chapter explores how Svenska Läkartidningen (SLT) in the 1930s and 1940s, by way of its publication of travel reports, could function as an agent of “brown” or pro-Nazi propaganda – at the same time as it kept on representing the Swedish medical corps as a professional and scientific collective. SLT hardly ever included any editorials – the one in first issue was a bit of an exception. The number of travel reports dealing with Nazi Germany that were published in SLT suffice to show a strong German inclination, especially when set in proportion to the number of reports dealing with other countries, and in relation to comparable collections of travel reports. Arguably due to its editorial bias, a disproportionate amount of travel reports from Germany were published in SLT during the Nazi era. The individual writers sometimes appear as active agents of propaganda, sometimes as more passive mediators of propaganda directed at them in Germany or its occupied territories.
