As Norway Burned

Exhibition at the Porsanger Museum, produced by the Norwegian Defense Museum.

Porsanger Museum presents a new exhibition about escape from war, forced evacuation and liberation in Finnmark, winter 1944-1945. “As Norway burned” is produced by the Norwegian Defense Museum. The museum has supplemented our own objects from our large collection of World War II objects. We have made an outline of the Nymarkshytta belonging to Thomassen family from Ytre Billefjord and the peat hut to the Hanssen family in Rohčidalen. This is to show the size of the cabin and the peat hut. We have furnished our own objects from this era, utility items that you had to bring to make everyday life easier.
