Sofia and princess Christina attended today at Sophiahemmet's graduation ceremony at the Stockholm City Hall.

Today, Princess Christina, Mrs Magnuson, is appointed to the first honorary doctor of Sophiahemmet University. This for a long and earnest commitment that goes far beyond the usual.
- Princess Christina has been working for the university's development for over 40 years. For us, there is an extremely important symbolic value that she is the one who becomes our first and only honorary doctor so far, says Johanna Adami, Principal of the Sophiahemmet University.
Today she and Sophiahemmet's chairman Lars Kihlström Burenstam Linder handed over doctor's hat, diploma and doctor's ring to Princess Christina at the graduation ceremony in the Blue Hall. A honorary doctorate is usually given as an expression of appreciation and significant efforts for an university's activity, and it is the institutions themselves who decide if and in such cases who will be appointed.
- Sophiahemmet University has recently been granted a degree in doctoral education, and since Princess Christina has been a major support for our academic environment, the appointment feels very good, says the Dean of Research at the University, Ingela Rådestad.
Princess Christina was the Honorary Chairman of Sophiahemmet for 44 years and has shown tireless commitment to the university's activities over the years. She has always taken part in big events such as nurses' graduation. But the Princess has also been standing steadily in more difficult times. Among other things, she was deeply engaged in the 80's when Sophiahemmet University was thrown down, but also when the entire group was coordinated just under ten years ago.
- She has worked most highly operationally and has been one that is influenced both internally and externally to the university's advantage. We are extremely grateful for this work, and I am pleased to be able to appoint Princess Christina, Mrs. Magnuson, to Honorary Doctor of Philosophy today. A title she really deserves, says Johanna Adami.

This is great, princess Christina has done a wonderful job for Sophiahemmet University, and many other associations. Wonderful that she gets this honour. And she looked regal and beautiful today.

Christina with members of her family: Tord Magnuson, Oscar Magnuson, Victor Magnuson, Vicky Andrén Magnuson and Frida Magnuson. Gustaf Magnuson and Emma Magnuson didn't attend.

Seminar on the occasion of the Holocaust Memorial Day
Due to the Holocaust Memorial Day, a seminar will be held on Friday, January 26, at 14.00 in Bernadotte Library, Royal Palace. The Queen, the Crown Princess and Prince Daniel attend the seminar, organized in collaboration with Forum för Levande Historia (The Living History Forum).
The seminar, initiated by the Crown Princess couple, shows the importance of remembering the Holocaust and learning from its history.
The Crown Princess begins the seminar by welcoming everyone. Daniel Poohl, editor-in-chief of newspaper Expo, talks about developments in Sweden and the impact of international development on the evolution of groups with extreme ideologies and cultures of violence. Professor Yehuda Bauer talks about the connection between the history of Holocaust and today's development of intolerant ideologies.
The seminar ends with a conversation between Professor Yehuda Bauer and Chief Editor Daniel Poohl, moderated by Ingrid Lomfors, Director of the Living History Forum.
The media is welcome to attend the seminar.

Yes, I recognized her from this photo. Sisters and survivors from concentration camps, Hedi Fried and Livia Fränkel are sitting beside her. Nina is 96 years old, Hedi 93 and Livia 90. Great ladies. Nina Lagergren was married with Gunnar Lagergren, the Marshal of the Realm in 1976-83. NIna was invited to Victoria's 40th birthday celebration last year.

The court at its website about the seminar:
Invited guests were among others survivors and relatives of survivors, organizations, embassies, students from Blackeberg and Åva high schools, teachers and students from the Police Program at Södertörn University.
The crown princess welcomed all and said in her speech:
"Never again, we say when we speak about the Holocaust. But ... think how many times in history as humanity has said "never again". And meant it. But still it happens. Again and again. Worldwide. In Rwanda, in the Balkans, in Burma: People are pursued, repressed, even killed. Just because they belong to a particular group of people or beliefs. "Wrong" group. "Wrong" faith.
Perhaps we will never completely suppress hatred and prejudice. [...] But what we can do, and must do, is to equip ourselves with knowledge and understanding.
Knowledge about our history and the meaning of words such as human rights, tolerance, civil courage. Understanding, that what happened may happen again, yes, will happen again if we are not very aware. It's when we forget the history when we risk repeating its worst and ugliest pages.
Testimonies from the people who survived The Holocaust are invaluable for creating this understanding. Some of you are here today. I can not thank you enough for the work you do by sharing your experiences."
