Heidi Guttorm Einarsen
Amidst warring powers

Why was there war? Why were there so many German soldiers in Finnmark? What was the evacuation plan? In this youth documentary, you will get an answer to these, and many other questions.

The documentary shows you Finnmark before and during the Second World War. Some say that history is best understood when it is told by those who lived it. Many of those that did, are well into their senior years now. However, when the war hit Finnmark, they were but children. They experienced desertion, bombs, fear, famine and many other things one shouldn't experience as a child. Here you can read how some of them survived and experienced the War.
