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."

Expressen writes that queen Silvia broke consciously the protocol by starting her speech at the seminar "Dear children".
It was a high level meeting with invited guests from all over the world who together discuss how to prevent violence against children.
Amongst the participants, apart from the Queen and Crown Princess Victoria are, among others, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, Deputy Secretary-General of UN Amina J. Mohammed, Dominican Republic's Minister for Women's Affairs Janet Camilo and Norway's Minister of Children and Equality Linda Hofstad Helleland.
If the Queen is speaking and the Crown Princess is sitting in the audience, the queen will first say "Your Royal Highness," and then welcome the other guests.
But when the Queen spoke on Wednesday, she completely dismissed the protocol.
Before addressing Crown Princess Victoria, she said: "Dear Children", to address the children who came to the Children's Rights Conference. In most cases, such a greeting message will come last - but since the day was about children and children's rights, the Queen chose to go a little beyond the limits.
The audience quickly noted that the protocol was broken and Queen Silvia smiled, a little proud to Crown Princess Victoria before she continued with "Your Royal Highness, Excellencies, Ministers, Ladies and gentlemen."
Also Deputy Secretary-General Amina J. Mohammed started her speech "Dear children".
