ACTIVISM. Norway’s Nest 3 honoured Vidkun Quisling and fallen National Socialists in Bergen on 24 October.
On Sunday, 24 October, activists from Nest 3 honoured the memory of Vidkun Quisling on the anniversary of his execution by the victors of World War II at Akershus Fortress in 1945, together with the memories of National Socialists who were executed in Bergen.
The Resistance men first travelled to Bergenhus Fortress, where eight National Socialists were executed after the war. Today, the site of their execution is a military area, so the activists placed a wreath on the gate, together with a list of names of those who were executed. A sun cross and a swastika were also attached to the wreath.
After the memorial ceremony, a large number of posters were put up around Bergenhus Fortress, a place where many people go during the daytime.
Later, the Resistance men positioned themselves on a footbridge on the outskirts of the city, with a banner in honour of Vidkun Quisling. On the posters and the banner was a quote by Vidkun’s wife, Maria: “He loved his country and his people more than his life”.
