Swimming alongside the wreck of ”Donau” in 1945.
"Summer holiday after the end of World War II. Shot by my grandfather on standard 8mm. My grandparents and my aunt took a trip from Oslo to Drøbak one idyllic summer day to swim alongside the wreckage of ''Donau'' a German transport ship sunk by Max Manus and the Norwegian resistance. It became known as the "slave ship" after the SS and Gestapo transported 540 Jews from Norway to Stettin, from which they were moved by train to Auschwitz. Only eight of those deported on the ''Donau'' survived.
The sabotage operation was conducted with 10 explosive devices known as limpets. The wreckage was salvaged 7 years later."
