De som tapte freden

"De som tapte freden" is a notion of the fate of the individual in the great political system.

October 25, 2019, it was 75 years since the Red Army liberated East Finnmark after World War II.

In post-war Norway, we have heard little about the resistance work that was done in the north.

The partisans in East Finnmark did not receive medals, decorations or recognition from the Norwegian authorities.

The Samovar Theater has been inspired by the books "People at a Border" and "Moscow Knows No Tears".

Based on the story of Osvald Harjo and Harald Rygh, we want to highlight the partisans' work, the war that raged in the north, and the difficult choices many people made in light of their time.

This is the story of those who fought for what they believed in and sacrificed everything, but who lost peace.
