Norwegian Youth Visit Hitler ID's

Post by Mark Costa » 06 Jan 2021 16:19

In November 1940, 10 members of the Norwegian Unghird and Gjentehird visted Berlin as a Youth Delegation set up by Dr. Kurt Petter. These members were high ranking members of their respective organizations and were vetted around Berlin eventually meeting with Hitler. They were also awarded the rare Hitler Youth Decoration for Distinguished Foreigners. Some of these teenagers have been identified but others have not. Hopefully someone can put names to these faces.

PHOTO ONE.

Can anyone indentify anyone else on this photo??

Thanks.
