Selective remembrance: Memories of a Second World War refugee camp in Sweden

Abstract [en]

During the Second World War a number of military training camps were established in officially neutral Sweden for Norwegians who had fled the German occupation. Immediately after the war several of these localities were used to house women evacuated from German concentration camps. One of the Swedish camps has been subject of a small scale archaeological excavation. It brings important questions about remembrance and forgetting to the fore. What material remains are there to be found and what stories do local people tell? And why did one of the Norwegians excavate a Viking Age burial mound?
