Citation from the Nils Klim Prize Academic Committee:
Johan Östling, born 1978, is a postdoctorate researcher at the Department of History at Lund University. His research interests include Swedish, German and European modern history. His doctoral thesis "Nazismens sensmoral. Svenska erfarenheter i andra världskrigets efterdyning", defended in Lund 2008, presents a solidly grounded, innovative analysis of how the Nazi régime and the atrocities committed in the name of Germany influenced the Swedish public in the early post-war years. The "Nazi experience" caused an intellectual earthquake in Sweden and lead to a profound intellectual reorientation, away from German culture and towards the Anglo-Saxon world.
