World War 2 Nazi Base

Finnmark is the county farthest north in Norway. It is also the least populated. This is where my husband grew up, in a fishing community called Båtsfjord. During World War 2, Norway was occupied by Nazi Germany. There are a number of their bases along the Finnmark coastline. Like most boys, ours love a good fight, a story of good overcoming evil. And with a backdrop like this, they are having fun pretending to be the "good guys", defeating the "bad guys"(war is obviously not that simple though!). Ben loves talking about war history and his boys eat it up. Ben brought his Nazi helmet along to play with! These pictures are from Kongsfjord, Norway, near Berlevåg
