Occupied by Germans

Rolighed was also a victim of the Nazi occupation.

For the entire duration of the Second World War in Norway, Rolighed was used by the Germans. The facade was painted with swastikas that could still be seen, many years afte the war had ended. The numbers on two of the doors in the building were put there during the war.

When a light wall was removed from the hall in 1992, two letters were found. The letters were from 1942, and signed Torleif, one of the students at the Norwegian SS-school in Kongsvinger.
