In the early 1950`s the Norwegian government decided to exhume and rebury all Soviets from all the different camp sites all over Norway. They was going to be reburied on a few centralized memorial sites. This project was tried done in secrecy and the reasoning of it all was fear of spies since many of the sites was close to sensitive military areas. But I am working on a whole article about this operation so lets get back to today.
First place I went to I have been several times before but never with a camera. Here was a rather large camp for Soviet POWs and for a short periode also Yugoslav prisoners. On a small hill near the camp was the burial ground where the original monument still stand. In the forest one can see traces of the graves that was exhumed in 1951.
