Julie Lindahl is an author, educator and activist based in Sweden. During the past decade she has researched, spoken and written about the causes and reverberations of radicalization, war and genocide through the generations based on her own experience of discovering her grandparents' role in the Third Reich. Her memoir of her journey of discovery, The Pendulum: A Granddaughter's Search for Her Family's Forbidden Nazi Past (Rowman & Littlefield, 2019 and Norstedts 2019) has been critically acclaimed in both the US and Sweden where it has been a best-selling title.
She writes and speaks widely about her experiences, is a contributor to WBUR Cognoscenti and has been featured on National Public Radio in the U.S. several times. WBUR 9.0 won the 2018 Edward R. Murrow award for excellence in innovation and the 2018 Associated Press Media Editor’s Award for innovation in storytelling based on a program series featuring her story. In 2019 NPR’s Snap Judgment released “Quiet is Best,” a program about her relationship with her grandmother. Her work has been featured on Swedish television and radio on several occasions. For further information visit Media & Events.
She is the founder of Stories for Society, a non-profit organization for renewing the art of storytelling for social transformation, which in 2018 launched “Voices Between: Stories Against Extremism,” an initiative aimed at creating a force for peace by building a global network of established authors demonstrating and discussing the impact of intolerance, extremism and war through their stories.
In 2018 she launched an on-line classroom for schools and universities in tandem with the publication of The Pendulum.
Her previous written works explored Nordic culture and lifestyle, including from her perspective of living on a small Swedish island over many years.
Julie holds a Bachelor of Arts (Magna cum Laude) from Wellesley College, a Master of Philosophy in International Relations from Oxford University and was a Fulbright Scholar in Frankfurt, Germany. Raised in ten countries on three continents, she has worked globally as a consultant in the developing world.
