Apart from the obvious one, 11 September also marked the third anniversary since Anna Lindh was brutally murdered, in daylight, in the center of Stockholm and for still unknown reasons.
It was och I still find it difficult to talk about her death and when I went to see her tombstone it became very emotional. I was happy to have my son there with me. Because of the ongoing election campaign in Sweden the sad anniversary was not really noted by the media. Anna was another champion of contact between people and the Egyptian government was instrumental in having the Euro-Mediterranean Foundation for the Dialogue between Cultures named after her.
Gestern versuchte ich Wahlergebnisse für die swedische Reichstagswahl zu finden, aber das war wohl noch zu frisch. Angeblich haben es die Konservativen geschafft.
Die Frau Lindh war damals so weit ich mich erinnern kann in einem Supermarkt erstochen worden. Diese Bürgernähe in der schwedischen Kultur bedingt eine Verwundbarkeit.
