Laudal/Kerner

The exhibition "Laudal/Kerner" shows the lifeline of two men who, for many, represent the two outer edges of World War II in the south of Norway.

The exhibition opened February 1, 2018, and shows the life of major Arne Laudal and Gestapo leader Rudolf Kerner. Who were these two men without uniforms and medals?

The history is told with their own words, taken from reports, documents, letters and personal memories they wrote to their loved ones. The exhibition shows how historical events in the world affected their lives and choices. Both got sentenced to death because of these choices. One was executed, the other pardoned, and given a second chance in life.
