Göteborg, Sweden

A virtual tour of Göteborg's cemeteries

Some think it's so haunting / To be drawn to the ceremetry ground as we / There's a stillness here / Thankful found. - Lilydale, 10,000 Maniacs

Visiting cemeteries is a passion for Diane Larsson. In one small geographic location, visiting a cemetery is historical time traveling , a confrontation with mortality, and a reminder to cherish and use the time she has on this earth. Join Diane at the Democrats Abroad Western Sweden May Afterwork on a virtual “highlights” tour of Göteborg’s cemeteries.

Cemeteries serve as important cultural and historical landmarks, preserving the memories and legacies of those who have passed on. In this short tour, our visit will include the final resting places of some notable citizens of Göteborg whose work and contributions shaped Göteborg and even reached beyond the city and Sweden. We will discover beautiful architecture that was built to represent a life that was once lived, with hopes and dreams, joys and sorrows. From the ornate monuments of the wealthy to the simple markers of the average person, our cemeteries are a microcosm of history and of society itself. Join us and learn about the history of Göteborg through its cemeteries!
Attend in person (kindly buy some food or drink from the bar before heading up to the meeting room on the second floor, in the back) or online on WebEx.
