9/11 Museum Hosts Program on 2011 Terror Attack in Norway

On July 22, 2011, a single terrorist murdered 77 Norwegians in Oslo and nearby Utøya island. Most of the victims were teenagers attending a Labour Party youth camp. This was the deadliest attack in Norway since World War II.

The 9/11 Memorial Museum is hosting a program on Wed., May 24, called "Terror and Memory in Norway: The July 22 Attacks" featuring historian Tor Einar Fagerland and architect Atle Aas. They will discuss the work of creating two memorial sites that commemorate this national tragedy. The program is supported by the Norwegian Consulate General New York.

Tickets to the program are free, but registration is required. Those unable to attend, may watch it live at 911memorial.org/live at 7 p.m. on Wed., May  24.
