The exhibition «Soviet prisoners of war in Norway» narrates the history of the nearly 100,000 Soviet citizens who were detained in Norway during WWII as prisoners of war or as civilian forced labourers. The Falstad Centre was commissioned by the Norwegian Ministry of Culture and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to create this exhibition in connection with President Medvedev’s state visit to Oslo in 2010.
The exhibition was initially displayed at the Norwegian Defence Museum and later shown at the Falstad Centre and at Klungset Camp at Fauske, Nordland County. Two additional copies of «Soviet prisoners of war in Norway» have been made. These serve as travelling exhibitions in Norway and Russia.
