Overview
More
The Blood Road Museum is situated in the grounds of Saltdal Museum. The story of the lives and work of prisoners of war under the German regime from 1942-1945 is presented in a German barracks moved here from Dunderdalen. Thousands of prisoners of war from eastern Europe were sent north to build roads and railways. They suffered inhuman conditions. Many never returned. This is a different tour experience in surroundings where the silence is tangible. Words are inadequate but impressions are many and deep. This is an important journey in a time which must never be forgotten.

This was a sudden whim to turn off the E6 on our way south, just to have a break in our journey. So glad we did so. This museum explained for us a story whose details we did not know; simply that there was a...More
