My grand uncle: Holger Wiedersheim-Paul

Holger Jurgen Wiedersheim-Paul was my grand uncle and Adolf Paul’s youngest son. He was born in Berlin, Germany in 1907, and moved to Sweden in 1931 to study at the Konsthogskolan (Stockholm Academy of Art) with Swedish artist (and a friend of his father) Albert Engstrom. He worked as an artist, illustrator, graphic designer and teacher.

Holger married Herta Maria Charlotte Fourestier in 1932 and was married to her until he passed away in Ronninge outside Stockholm in 1970. It was a very happy marriage, according to my mother.

Holger and Herta had four children: Ragnar, Yvonne, Anette and Tomas.

His son Tomas Wiedersheim-Paul wrote his bibliography click on the link below:
