In the book it is written that 4 Norwegians commited terrible attrocities.The four of them were killed while they tried to eliminate Polish civilians. The first one were an 18 yeard old man from Lier, the second a 17 year old man from Oslo, the third a 19 year old man from Oslo and the fourth a 25 year old from Bergen writes Aftenposten. (An other Norwegian newspaper)Terrible attrocitiesVeum underlines that most of the Norwegian soldiers who got recruited to the German war effort were participating in «normal» war effort, if you look away from that Hitlers war really was against commonjustification and criminal. The books photo materials were collected by Geir Brenden. They have gone through many documented sources to get into what happened.«Every human they see in their advance, has to be killed. If it's an infant, non, nurse or handicapped patients doesn't matter. Everyone has to be killed» was written in the about SS-groups attack on the civilians in WarsawNew knowledgeVeum says its time to be open about the Norwegians who fought on the German side during the war.- Only with full openess can we get answers to questions wich has been tabu in 65 years, he says.The leader of "Norges Hjemmefrontmuseum" ,Arnfinn Moland, says the book is impressive. He strongly informed us that the new knowledge about Norwegians participated in a group wich had to fight the Warsaw uprising, and that in that way the book adds something important to Norways war history.
