Kirkenes, Dresden and Malta have got one thing in common: These cities were heavily bombed during World War 2. Kirkenes had more than 300 bombing raids from Soviet airplanes, and more than 1000 times during the war years, the Air Raid alarms were sounded. This was because Kirkenes was one of the most strategically important places in Europe during the war.
Visit Andersgrotta –Kirkenes’ largest bomb-shelter, built in 1943. Andersgrotta is constructed beneath the bedrock in the centre of Kirkenes, a brilliantly well hidden location. We will show a 9 minute unique archive film, explaining why Kirkenes was bombed and how life as a civilian was during the war.
