Doctor during invasion

Post  Finkster on Sat 6 Mar 2010 - 10:19

Hi

My grandfather was a doctor at Rena, one of the places bombed by the germans in their pursuit of the king during the invasion. He supposedly joined the norvegian armed forces as a doctor. We know little of this as he wouldnt talk much about it. He returned in rags summer of 1940, probably he was in german captivity at some point in time. What im courios about is an incident he mentioned where he and other doctors were lined up to get shot if they didnt reveal which one of them were jewish. No one of them supposedly told and they were released thereafter. Do anyone know of such incindent?

Yours sincerly

I do not think the germans where looking for jews in Norway this early, it was done later on in the war. But then again, it could happen that a german unit commander found it particularly interesting to round up jews at his own initiative.
