How one could get rich in Norway after WW2
Treatment of Norwegian Patriots after WW2
Norwegian History during WW2
Dear Aryan Kindred
One of the things the Norwegian Exile Government wanted to
do if they ever returned to Norway from London, UK, after WW2 was to
economically ruin every member of Nasjonal Samling, NS. This they agreed to do
in 1943. By doing so they would make it impossible for any member of NS ever
to rise and claim his legal rights being restored even though he/they could
prove that the laws used to damage him were injustice. The Exile Government
wanted to give each members of NS a fine up to 1 million NOK, at that time
approximately US$ 250,000, a huge sum of money - money which hardly any
Norwegian had. By giving such a fine they knew that no only the NS-members,
but also their whole family would for ever be condemned.
The children of the NS-members have been suffering from the prosecution of
their parents ever since the end of WW2. In a future letter I will tell you
some of the stories of these children - and what their suffering were.
For information regarding the laws used after WW2 to condemn members of NS,
please go to my web-side and read the other letters in this series.
A Jurist steals an Apartment
A young jurist - just out of the university - needed an apartment for his
wife and coming family. He did not have any money to buy any. But being an
initiative man he knew what to do. With some members of Hjemmefront (Home
Front/Resistance) he went to the apartment of an imprisoned NS-member. He
confiscated the apartment and demanded that the wife and her children, who
lived in the apartment, to leave. They had no place to go, so they ended up on
the street - this until they through other friends, also members of NS, could
find a place to live. In the apartment this young jurist, he was at that time
serving at the public prosecutor, found a bank book. Being a very good jurist,
our young friend knew that he had tp buy the apartment should he not lose it
if the family should take legal steps to get the apartment back. As he had no
money, our jurist took the bank book with him and went to the bank to collect
the money. Sorry for our jurist the bank did not want to give him the money,
as they claimed the money belonged to the state. The money was later collected
by The Directorate of Indemnity.
The directorate handled all economic claims which the state had towards
members of NS.
The young jurist got the apartment - he bought it at a very cheap price,
but he had to use his own money.
From the 60's and until he retired our jurist was the leading professor at
the University of Oslo, Norway in Criminal Laws. He wrote many books on
criminal laws, he even wrote books on the legal treatment of the NS-members,
of course he defended the laws used to condemn the NS, but never did he
mention how he got his first apartment.
A Man builds up a Housing Imperium.
During the summer of 1945 a young man came to Oslo to visit a friend from
the war-time. The friend had been one of the leaders of the Hjemmefront, now
he was secretary to the coming prime minister of Norway. The young man wanted
to be rich and hoped his war-time buddy wanted to help him. Together these two
"heros" found a way in which the young man could get his hands on an enormous
fortune. The plot was as follows:
The young man went to The Directorate of Indemnity. Here he said he wanted
to buy apartments, buildings and properties belonging to members of NS. As the
Directorate could not sell many apartments, buildings and properties to one
man, the young man engaged a female friend of the secretary, whom he later
engaged as his secretary, to act as buyer with him.
In this way the young man became a building tycoon in Oslo. Later he bought
up buildings all over Norway, some from the Directorate some on the open
The secretary later became Secretary of State for Defence and Minister of
Justice. He also had his own firm of lawyers in Oslo. The once secretary to
the coming prime minister of Norway have after the refused to tell the real
number of NS-members and German soldiers the Hjemmefront killed during WW2. He
have claimed "only" 75. Some historians have proved that at least 150 were
killed by the Hjemmefront, some as late as two days after WW2 ended.
FARMS BELONGING TO NS-MEMBERS WERE CONFISCATED AND SOLD
Many of the NS-members owned large farms. Some of these farms were
confiscated by the Directorate. Such confiscation was against paragraph 104 of
the Norwegian Constitution:
Forfeiture of Lands and Goods shall be abolished.
This paragraph meant very little to the judges and juries convicting the
members of NS. Many a good and old farm had to be given to The Directorate of
Indemnity to pay for the fine the NS-members were sentenced to pay. In some
cases the farms were taken from the families before any member had been
sentenced. These farms, those which were taken from members of NS, were later
given or sold at a very low price to members of the Socialist party and in
some case to other people whom had served the Hjemmefront during the last 6 or
7 months of WW2.
One particular fine and large farm ended up on the hands of a politician
who before WW1 were a tenant farmer. His son was some 30 years after WW2
convicted as spy for Soviet and sentenced to 12 years imprison.
A lot of NS-members tried to take back their family farms by claiming the
allodial privilege, a privilege which is very strong in Norway. But all lost
The allodial privilege are so strong, before WW2 and to-day, that if one
part of a family should sell a farm with such privilege an other part of the
same family could buy the farm back claiming the privilege were misused. And
they will always get their rights.
Looking back on the juridical happenings in Norway of past WW2 one could
easily rewrite Shakspere and be right saying: There is something rotten in the
state of Norway!
