Blodveimuseet (The Bloodroad museum) – Saltdal museum

During the war, tens of thousand prisoners of war were transported to Nordland to build roads for the Germans. They were housed in 54 prison camps. The work was back-breaking, the treatment they received brutal, and many thousand died. Three of the roads in this community are named ‘Roads of Blood’. Few traces of the camps remained after the war, so the focus of the museum is the tragic, but important history of the hapless victims.
