ACTIVISM. On 17 May – Norway’s Constitution Day – the Nordic Resistance Movement conducted a poster campaign in several Norwegian towns regarding Paragraph 2 of the Norwegian Constitution – also known as the “Jewish paragraph”.
On Norway’s Constitution Day, 17 May, the Nordic Resistance Movement conducted a poster campaign in several Norwegian towns. Activists and members plastered towns with a suitable poster for the day, declaring that the constitution is not complete without Paragraph 2, also known as the “Jewish paragraph”.
The Jewish paragraph was a continuation and tightening of the restrictions against Jews’ access to the kingdom, compared with the time before 1814, when the constitution was signed. Prior to this, Jews had access to the kingdom with a royal letter of safe conduct. After the introduction of the paragraph, Jews who arrived in Norway – either voluntarily (as travelling merchants) or involuntarily (as the result of shipwrecks) – were arrested, deported from the country and sometimes fined.
