During this autumn Lviv has had visits from Scandinavia. Here are only some examples.

In October The Swedish Trade Council, and the Embassy of Sweden in Ukraine organized The Swedish Business Days. The purpose was to promote cooperation between Swedish and Ukrainian companies.

Also in October The Swedish Embassy also organized, in cooperation with Tekinska Museet in Stockholm, the exhibition “Kreativa Kvinnor” (“Creative Women”). During the opening the Swedish inventor Åsa Lövberg presented her invention, Guldkannan.

Before I moved to Lviv I didnt know that one of my big role models in writing, Sholem Aleichem, did live in Lviv for a couple of years. But he was, as I, a restless soul and moved around a lot so to cross his tracks is not very surprising. However, I did know that Ludwik Fleck did work and live in Lviv before and during World War II. I hope to able to write about his Lvivian legacy during this winter. Below you can see a photo of the Jewish Hospital, were he worked.
