Norwegian Nazi children shown on DVD to be distributed and sold in the market Saturday, 22 October 2011
Several hundred Norwegian children and adolescents who were active in Nazi organizations during the war period have been presented in a new DVD coming out on the market next month.
There are pictures and clips from the 1941 and 1942, produced by Nasjonal Samling and shown in Norwegian cinemas during the war. They have now been collected on a DVD, according to Norwegian TV2.
Among other things, it displays hundreds of active Nazis who made Hitler salute to Vidkun Quisling, who formed a Norwegian Nazi party 1933.
AdvertisementThis is not without its problems, says the leader of Norway's Resistance Museum, Arnfinn Moland. Hundreds of Nazis can be recognized, among them members of the child and youth movements.
“There are lots of children and adolescents are could be affected. You can count on family that are related to. This I believe to be a burden,” says Moland to TV 2.
But publisher SF Norway believes that there is historical value in it which outweighs individual burdens.
“There is definitely something we have taken consideration at the forefront before we decided to launch this. But we are considering the material as historically important and interesting, we have chosen to make it available to the public,” says SF Norway, Svein Risberg.
Many families will get an unpleasant surprise. Many will recognize their fathers and mother, or grandfather and grandmother who would have been party of a Nazi movement.
Celebrating Adolf Hitler's 53 th birthday at Karl Johans Gate in Oslo and a propaganda march on Torgallmenningen in Bergen, women and men greeted Vidkun Quisling with the Nazi salute.
