Hurtigruten in The War with Åsa Elstad

Welcome to a lecture by historian Åsa Elstad on 18 May.

About the lecture

During World War II, the Hurtigruten route became a war zone where many Vesterålings were also affected. At the same time, the population along the coast was even more dependent than before on Hurtigruten for freight and necessary travel. As many as fourteen Hurtigruten ships were sunk in the period 1940-45, in addition to three “replacement express routes. Most of them were sunk by Norway’s allies. More than 700 people perished, but it would be more than 50 years after the war before the sailors on board were accepted as war sailors.

Entrance fee: NOK 100,- / per person
