born in Södertälje, Sweden, in 1948, Göran Rosenberg studied Philosophy and Journalism. He is a writer, publisher and documentary filmmaker. In his recent book »Ett kort uppehåll på vägen till Auschwitz« (2012; tr. A brief stop on the way to Auschwitz) he tells the story of his Jewish father, a former prisoner in the camp of Auschwitz. Rosenberg combines historical facts and personal memories in a moving narrative, by which he tries to understand his father’s early suicide.
