Expressen’s articles caused a public-relations nightmare for Ikea. Some Jewish groups called for boycotts of the company, although the efforts had little effect on its business. In response, Kamprad wrote an apology letter to the company’s 25,000 employees, saying he had severed ties with fascists by the 1950s and calling the period „part of my life which I bitterly regret.”
Recurring questions about his prior nationalist, anti-Semitic views seemed to frustrate Kamprad and his allies. A chapter in his 1999 autobiography asks, „When is an old man forgiven for the sins of his youth?”
