I have a strong interest in World War II history because I recently completed the English-language translation of the autobiography of Mitsuo Fuchida, leader of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
This museum has displays and exhibits that explain Germany's invasion and conquest of Norway and subsequent defeat. Several of my Norwegian friends said that all Norwegians could be speaking German today except for a few key incidents that resulted in Allied victory.
The exhibits also explain how neutral Sweden, from which Norway gained independence only in 1905, was not so neutral in 1942. The torture instruments used by Norwegians against fellow Norwegians are stark reminders of what happened only 70 years ago.
