    Norway has troubles with its past as we have in Denmark.

    Skijeger bataljon Norge, SS Legion Norwegen, they have never existed if you ask Norwegian government. Same with Frikorps/Freikorps Danmark here, all documents stamped "secret" for 75 years.
    Why 75 years, do you think???

    Hi Atle, would be awesome to see some more of your photos from this trip... what's been shared and posted so far is very interesting, I think especially so for the relatively few of us norwegians on here Har du noen fotos av selve Hasselmannhøyden fra sjøsiden eller lignende? Sliter med å finne gode bilder online...uansett, takk for beretningen om denne ekspedisjonen hittil!

    That's true Vonforhud (funny name) I know some here in Russia who found a Danish soldier from near Vilekie Luki with dog tag and all. Danish government would not even help them find his relatives....... He is buried in Russia. Damn it.

    I can understant the reaction of the Norwegen government. These men were renigades and traitors to their country. They were not forced to join the army of an occuping power, they joined up of their own free will, by any standard they were traitors. My father was killed in WWII and I have little time for some of the sentiments on this thread implying that these soldiers should be welcomed back into the country that they betrayed. John.
    No they were not force to go, but the Danish government encouraged them to do so. The Danish king personally signed permissions for Danes who was serving in the army at the time to step out of rank and join the Waffen SS. Communism was logically, at the time looked on as a threat to European culture, democracy, Christianity and so on, Government of Denmark took part in forming peoples mindset and thinking. The larger part of the men who went to the Eastern front did this to fight communism. My grand father was in German service and was not even national socialist, he was just a patriot. I find it strange you can sit here 70 years after and judge men from that time.

    Best regards

    Denmark changed side to the allies in august 1943, when the Danish government resigned, because Germany wanted them to use death penalty on the very few saboteurs that was resisting the Germans.

    Ironically death penalty was used after the war on the Danes in German service.
