The War

Helge helgesen

Helge was a 30 year old local man from Talvik who hid away weaponds from the Germans during World War Two.

Together with his friends he hid from the Germans in a little cottage between the Ulvsvaag lake and Talvik.

The Germans found them, and the friends had to try to run away from the soldiers.

But Helge was unlucky - he was shot by a german soldier and died.

Today, you can see a monument in memory of Helge put up nearby Talvik Church , and you can read on it when he was shot.
