Gjenreisningsmuseet for Finnmark og Nord-Troms
(The reconstruction museum for Finnmark and Nord-Troms)
Our exhibits portray the dramatic events of the 2nd. World War: forced evacuation, destruction and reconstruction, and shows how the inhabitants built their new homes by optimism, belief in the future and strength of will. In 1944 the ‘scorched earth’ policy of the Germans and the forced evacuation of the population left Finnmark and Nord-Troms desolated. When peace came, the authorities tried to hinder the return of the population but people ignored the order – and the danger from mines – to start rebuilding their homes.
