Edvardson was born in Munich, Germany, in 1929. She was raised Catholic. However, since her father, Hermann Heller, was Jewish, Edvardson was arrested by the Nazis and deported to the Theresienstadt and Auschwitz concentration camps during the Holocaust. Her maternal grandfather had also been Jewish, and converted to Catholicism.
