Nobel prisen

Shares 0

Nominations from 1901 to 1951, however, have been released in a database.

When the past nominations were released it was discovered that Adolf Hitler was nominated in 1939 by Erik Brandt, a member of the Swedish Parliament. Brandt’s intention was primarily to protest against the nomination of Neville Chamberlain by twelve of his colleagues. The tone of the nomination letter was ironic, even sarcastic. Its publication caused an uproar in the Swedish press as some newspapers initially failed to recognize the irony, while others thought it highly inappropriate to mock Hitler and make fun of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Brandt retracted the nomination after a few days.[2]

Other infamous nominees included Joseph Stalin and Benito Mussolini. However, since nomination requires only support from one qualified person (eg. a history professor), these unusual nominations do not represent the opinions of the Nobel committee itself.

Hvad mangler vi? At Adolf Eichmann har været nomineret, på grund af sine uselviske forsøg på at løse jødeproblemet en gang for alle? Svenskerne har aldrig været kendt for at være de store jødeelskere. Og det ser ikke ud til at blive bedre i den nærmeste fremtid.
