Helena Trus, granddaughter of a Holocaust survivor, and Julie Lindahl, granddaughter of an SS officer meet in a conversation about the power of choice in the fight against hate and discrimination, by reflecting on their own history and listening to the other’s. Moderator: Sara Glaser from the Malmö-based association Amanah.
Music by Adolphson&Falk playing from their song series called IIII Dedications (Four Dedications). The songs are about our stories and other people’s stories about the Holocaust.
Journalist at Aftonbladet since 2005 and currently works as a news reporter with a focus on social reporting and news since 2021 at Expressen. 2019 she released the book “Ett kilo socker” about her grandmother who survived the Holocaust. Since several years, she lectures about her family history, among other things, in schools and is involved in issues related to antisemitism.
Author and activist who has researched and written about her grandparents who belonged to the SS in occupied Poland. During World War II, they fled to Brazil where Julie was born. In her book “Pendeln”, she tells a story about two people, her grandparents, who abandoned democracy and actively worked for a society ordered according to race. What drove them to this and what consequences did it have for them and theirs surviving? Her story is permeated by the connection to the present.
SfS – “Stories for Society” is a non-profit association that aims to renew the power of story for social change, especially among young people. Julie Lindahl founded the association in 2010 and has conducted projects in Sweden, Bosnia-Herzegovina and the USA, often with a focus on the issue about how people can better live together.
After being touched by Julie’s search in “Pendeln”, Adolphson & Falk, the duo since 50 years, wrote the song “Julie’s song”. Tomas and Anders themselves have no personal connection to the Holocaust, but use music as another way to unite, elevate and express the difficult subjects.
