Statement on German leadership during the 1930s and 1940s

On January 31st 2021, Kim Bergstrand participated in an interview about leadership in Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, where he referred to German leadership during the 1930s and 1940s as something you "can learn from". In the TV clip, Bergstrand states that he has learned that:

- “Leadership is something you deserve and work towards. You are not born a leader, it is not something you get for free but it is hard work all the time. To reflect but also read what other wise people have done, or good leaders and people who have led people. You can say what you want about some horrible people who lived in Germany in the 30s and 40s, but they managed to get people to do things in a context. Methods and such can be discussed, but there are certainly things that they also did that you can learn from. Or how not to do. But I think you can look for leadership everywhere."

The statement received strong criticism, including from the Swedish Committee against Anti-Semitism.
