This seminar “The Norwegian Red Cross during World War II” was held on Tuesday 14 June from 10:00 to 11:00AM at the Norwegian Red Cross, Hausmanns gate 7, Oslo.
To what extent did the Norwegian Red Cross manage to operate between 1940 and 1945? At a time when the principles of the Red Cross movement were being challenged, the organisation, interacting between the occupation regime and civil society – with international law and the basic humanitarian principles as central focal points – managed to substantiate its own independence and emerge stronger from the war years.
