One comment on “Not A Good Day To Be Norway Or Denmark – April 9, 1940

  1. Years ago, I met a girl whose parents had been young adults in Norway during the occupation. When she was 8 years old or so, her folks took her there for her very first visit. In the small town in which they were raised, a friendly custom was observed, in which sailors on the ships entering the local fiord were given a friendly wave by the locals. She dug it, of course, as any small child would. That is, until one day, when, after waving at a ship, her mother slapped her across the face. “That’s a German ship”, she was told. “Never, ever wave to a German ship”.
