A 94 year old reminds us that “one person can make a difference”

Nina Lagergren, half sister to Raoul Wallenberg, visited VRGD on April 21.  Together with her granddaughter, Cecilia Åhlberg, Mrs. Lagergren shared the story of her brother’s work during WWII.

She also shared the inspiring message that

one person can make a difference

no matter how large or small.  And, she talked about the Raoul Wallenberg Stiftelse as a possible organization where we can get involved.

Mrs. Lagergren is living history.  Thank you for visiting our school and sharing your family’s memories.

About kristylundstrom

I currently work as Head at Viktor Rydberg Gymnasium in Djursholm. I am a student of learning. I am interested to see where it happens, when it happens, and how it happens. I am also a math and computer science teacher. I have lived in Belgium and in the USA. I really appreciate my multi-cultural environment - I believe it adds dynamics to our school.
