Norwegian Red Cross during World War II

Seminar on Tuesday 14 June in Oslo

We welcome you to this seminar “The Norwegian Red Cross during World War II” to be held on Tuesday 14 June from 10:00 to 11:00AM at the Norwegian Red Cross, Hausmanns gate 7, Oslo.

Register here to attend.

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.
