The head of the National Archives of Norway, Ivar Fonnes, announced this week that he’ll be opening up long-sealed files on the state’s court cases against tens of thousands of Norwegians who were accused of treason during World War II.
Only researchers and those directly affected by the charges filed and court cases held after the war have had access to the files. They include information on around 90,000 cases of alleged treason and more than 350 cases against Norwegians accused of war crimes.
