Sweden stayed neutral throughout World War I and II, siding neither with the Axis nor the Allies. But Sweden did let trains carrying German soldiers and supplies go through the country to both Finland and Norway (the so-called Permittenttrafik) to avoid getting into a war with the Germans. Sweden was also the biggest supplier of iron ore to Germany which is often discussed as a potential reason for its successful neutrality. Sweden also supplied ball bearings to both United Kingdom and Germany according to some estimates it was very important for the war effort and totaled about 58% of German supplies and 31% of British. Swedish government allowed British access to it's territory to ensure the delivery of the bearings through the German blockade. Sweden managed to de-crypt the German Geheimfernschreiber(considered more complicated then the famous enigma machine) in only two weeks on June 1940 and several years the Swedish government could listen in on German intelligence. In some rare cases Sweden supplied information to the allies about this. Most famous of them where information to United Kingdom that German was going to attack Soviet. The British gave the information to Stalin who ignored it. Being a neutral country, tens of thousands of Jewish refugees fled to Sweden to escape the Nazi Holocaust.
