Lauritx, 15 years old

Lauritz, now age 88, was at 15 an active member of the resistance in Norway. He had to flee to Sweden and came to the now relatively unknown gymnastics camps for secret training of soldiers in Sweden. His brother at 16 joined the youth association, Nasjonal Samling (Quisling’s party) in Norway and was recruited to the Norwegian Legion which took part in the Battle of Leningrad on the side of Germany. This book project is a documentation of events during World War II while the main character is still alive and can tell. The events are not just history, they are direct parallels with what is happening today and they can increase our understanding.
