STOCKHOLM - Cordelia Edvardson, 83, a Holocaust survivor and award-winning Swedish journalist who reported on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for three decades, died Monday after an undisclosed illness.
Ms. Edvardson was the Jerusalem correspondent for Swedish daily Svenska Dagbladet from 1977 to 2006 and later worked as a columnist for the newspaper.
She was born in 1929 in Munich, Germany. Her father was Jewish, and though she was raised Catholic, the Nazis regarded her as a Jew and sent her to concentration camps in Theresienstadt and Auschwitz. She described her experiences in a 1984 autobiography for which she won the German Geschwister-Scholl literary award.
