1941: Oslo

Anti-Jewish graffiti on a shop in Oslo during the second year of The German Occupation.

Norway had a minute Jewish population at the time—there were fewer than 3,000 persons of Jewish faith in the entire country in 1941—and displays of anti-Jewish sentiment during a brutal occupation would seem incomprehensible.

The graffiti at the front reads, in English: “The Jew Parasite Got Us On April 9” (April 9 had been the date of the German invasion of Norway).

The graffiti at the side reads, in English: “Palestine calls for all Jews. We don’t stand them any more in Norway.”
