Caroline Hammarskjöld handles copyright matters of the Dag Hammarskjöld inheritance.

Together with her mother Marlene, she cares for Dag’s written work, mainly his poetry and other documents, as well as his personal photographs. 

Dag himself was a very active photographer. He once said "The camera taught me how to see".


Many of his photos and other documents  are located at the National library in Stockholm, Sweden.

In the spring of 2018  the library collection was established World Memory by UNESCO and the large collection is currently under way of being digitalized for future generations. The Dag Hammarskjöld archives at the National Library consist of a 45 meter long isle worth of documents.

Other material such as personal notes, family letters, other correspondence and photos from Dag Hammarskjöld's life are kept in the family archives.


Many authors, artists and composers have been given a written consent to access this material for specific purposes and new publications.
