I forgot to tell, Norway has a tradition of arranging an anti Nazi demonstration on November 9th, the Crystal Night.
I know that both in Bergen and Oslo there will be held torchlight processions. In Haugesund there will be a speech by the memorial stone over Moritz Rabinowitz, the man who loved Haugesund, but whose love was not fully acknowledged till after his death. He was a brave writers of letters to newspapers and politicians, not only in Norway, but throughout Europe. He stood on the Nazis capture list as they invaded Norway. The only Jew in Haugesund. He managed to keep hidden for almost a year, before he was caught and sent to Germany to be tortured and killed.This year it's a hundred years since he came to Haugesund from Poland. There will be a memorial here too. Alas I must go and see my mother home from hospital that very day. She's going to live alone in her old home, after her own will. Stubborn as a mule, but lovable like an angel.
I hope your niece get to attend to the procession in Bergen. Of course she does. She's a remarkable and fully bright person.
I hope we will soon meet. We are a bit busy with my mother for the time being, travelling to and from all the time. I read her blog with great interest.

Leora says

Thank you so much for this information, Felisol. Maybe it will become a post... best wishes to your mother.
