Norwegian Resistance in WWII

The October issue of Viking magazine ought to be arriving in members home's this week and I can promise it's going to be a great issue! The feature I'm most excited about deals with members stories and experiences with Norwegian Resistance Movement during the World War II Nazi occupation.

When we reached out to our members a few months ago, asking for their stories, we had no idea there would be so many. In fact, we received more responses than there was room for in the magazine! So, for the next week or so the blog is going to be running a multi-part series retelling members' stories about resistance movement and their WWII experiences. We'll have posts about what happened during and after the German invasion and providing other interesting bits of information about Norway's struggle for independence from the Nazis.

We hope you'll enjoy the series. If you have stories of your own about Norway during WWII or the Resistance Movement, let us know about it because we'd love to hear your story. You can either post your story in the comments section below any of these posts, or you can e-mail them to me at and I'll be happy to post them.
