Hundreds of thousands died after a series of tsunamis struck coasts along the south-east Pacific ten years ago today.
In the tourist area of Khao Lak thousands of Swedish tourists were caught by the waves that hit Thailand.
At 5 pm local time Swedes will gather for the memorial ceremony, which will end with a speech by pastor Erik Stenberg Roos. He says to Swedish Radio News he will talk about how, by sharing the burden, people can get through the pain.
“There is help out there”, says Erik Stenberg Roos.
