Goran Jakob Rosenberg (born 11 October 1948) is a Swedish journalist and author.


Biography and career

Rosenberg was born in Sodertalje, Sweden, as the son of David and Hala Rosenberg from Lodz in Poland, who both came to Sweden after having survived Nazi concentration camps during World War II. He has written about his father's story and his childhood in the book A Brief Stop on the Road from Auschwitz (2012).

Rosenberg has worked at Sveriges Radio and Sveriges Television; 1979–85, he was host and reporter of the actuality-program Magasinet. In 1990, he founded the magazine Moderna tider, which he was editor-in-chief of until 1999, and he also hosted the actuality-program with the same name which was broadcast in TV3. From 1991 to 2011, he worked as columnist at Dagens Nyheter. Since 2012, he writes for Expressen.

He is the father of actress Vanna Rosenberg.

Political views

On 8 July 2014, during the Israeli Operation Brother's Keeper in the West Bank, he said that he no longer believes it is still possible to have peace between Israelis and Palestinians on "fairly just terms" and that he thinks Israel is becoming an apartheid state "with two blatantly unequal judicial systems; one justice for lawless Jewish settlers, another for outlawed Palestinians". What mainly made him write something on the issue was the Israeli-Arab author Sayed Kashua, who had during those days said he was leaving Israel because he "could not stand it anymore".
