My Mother in law visited the Von Rosen family home,
and she told me that the paneled roof had swastika
carvings. Von Rosen was involved in the early Finnish
Air Force, and his son in law was H. Goering.
But I think those carvings pre-dated the nazis,
even though von Rosen wasn't exactly a left-winger.
 I've always thought there might be a connection, but the
note about the  "völkish" movement makes it more
doubtful.
