Oppgave:

Du står nå foran et minnesmerke. Du skal ta bilde av den fargede plaketten sammen med et hjerte. Om du vil tegne et hjerte på papir, forme et med hendene, holde opp et hjerte eller annet er helt valgfritt. Bildet skal lastes opp sammen med loggen.

Historie:

Fra 1942-45 var det en stor fangeleir på Trondenes. Svært mange av fangene omkom. De russiske fangene som var i leiren da frigjøringen kom, reiste selv minnesmerket over sine døde kamerater sommeren 1945. Fangene mente at 800 hadde omkommet under forferdelige forhold i tysk fangenskap her på Trondenes. Høsten 1951 ble 403 graver funnet og flyttet fra gravstedet ved Trondenes kirke til Tjøtta internasjonale krigskirkegård i Nordland. Fangene ble brukt til regulert slavearbeid, både på det militære området på Trondenes og andre steder i byen. Det fantes flere fangeleirer i Harstad med omegn under andre verdenskrig. Leiren på Trondenes var den største med opp til 1200 fanger. Den sovjetiske krigsfangeleiren - Skilting og tilgjengelighet: En universelt utformet sti starter ved det Sovjetiske krigsminnesmerket nord for Trondenes Kirke. Traséen krysser sporene etter fangevokternes sti og de doble leirgjerdene, før den går videre inn i selve leiren langs fundamentene etter fangebrakkene. Skilting på norsk, engelsk, tysk og russisk.

Task:

You are now in front of a memorial. You should take a picture of the colored plaque together with a heart. Whether you want to draw a heart on paper, shape one with your hands, hold up a heart or else is completely optional. The image must be uploaded together with the log.

History:

From 1942-45 there was a large prison camp on Trondenes. Very many of the prisoners died. The Russian prisoners who were in the camp when the liberation came, even raised the memorial of their dead comrades in the summer of 1945. The prisoners believed that 800 had died under terrible conditions in German captivity here at Trondenes. In the autumn of 1951 403 graves were found and moved from the tomb of Trondenes Church to the Tjøtta International War Cemetery in Nordland. The prisoners were used for regulated slave labor, both in the military area of ​​Trondenes and elsewhere in the city. There were more prison camps in Harstad with surrounding areas during World War II. The camp at Trondenes was the largest with up to 1200 prisoners. Soviet prison camp - Signage and accessibility: A universally designed path begins at the Soviet War Memorial north of the Church of Trondenes. The traces cross the tracks after the prisoners' trail and the double camps before they move into the camp itself along the foundations of the fangs. Signage in Norwegian, English, German and Russian.
