Lasse Wilhelmson was born in 1941 in Stockholm, Sweden and has been retired since 2005. He is married to Lena, who is a Reader in Education, and has a large family with five children and a growing number of grandkids. Lasse’s professional life has been dominated by pedagogical questions in different contexts, starting out as a researcher and teacher at the university and ending as a wood-work instructor at a suburban school in Stockholm. He has a long experience of idealistic anti-imperialist solidarity work, from Vietnam until today. And he has as well been a union representative. Lasse has further worked on voluntary basis as an elected representative in his local council for 23 years, representing a coalition cutting across party lines. He was active in the revolutionary movement of 1968, and later within a Jewish peace group. Today Lasse is neither a Marxist nor a Jew and sees himself as a politically and ideologically independent humanist who regards the fight for Palestinian rights as the key to a peaceful world and Zionism as the biggest threat to humanity today.
