This is an apolitical forum for discussions on the Axis nations, as well as the First and Second World Wars in general hosted by Marcus Wendel's Axis History Factbook in cooperation with Michael Miller's Axis Biographical Research and Christoph Awender's WW2 day by day.
Close to my home, just south of Oslo, there is a plaque commemorating the shooting of three Norwegians who where housing an illegal radio transmitter (Corn Creek).
May 8 every year, flowers are placed by the plaque and a small "ceremony" is held.
Same thing in Denamrk - the same gouvernment who incouraged them to fight with the Germans punished them for doing so...
No, there aren't. They were indeed considered as traitors, and most served prison sentences for it after the war. Looking at it historically we can of course take a more balanced view, but the Norwegian state can hardly be expected to honour those who voluntarily fought for the power who attacked and occupied Norway, and with whom the Norwegian gvt was at war at the time.

Does anything like this exist in Germany?
