In Henrik Berggren’s new book Markings of His Life, Dag Hammarskjöld, the individual and the statesman, emerges in an accessible and personable manner like never before. Together with almost one hundred photographs, many published for the first time, renowned Swedish biographer Henrik Berggren writes with vigor and empathy about Hammarskjöld’s life.
The volume follows Hammarskjöld from his aristocratic childhood in Sweden to his youth in Uppsala castle, from his successful and rather unknown period as a Swedish civil servant to his illustrious time as head of the United Nations.
Henrik Berggren will present the book and participate in a discussion moderated by Henrik Hammargren, Executive Director of the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation.
