Norwegian police apologise for deporting Jews

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/history/world-war-two/9703293/Norwegian-police-apologise-for-deporting-Jews.html

The statement coincided with the 70th anniversary of the 1942 deportation of 532 Norwegian Jews and Jewish refugees on the SS Donau.

"I want to apologise on behalf of the Norwegian police and those who were responsible for carrying out the deportation of Norwegian Jews to concentration camps," newly appointed police director Odd Reidar Humlegaard told the daily Dagsavisen.

The collaborationist government of Vidkun Quisling, who was executed in 1945, ordered the deportation of hundreds of Jews from Norway in 1942.

The roundups were carried out by Norwegians, and not Germans, according to the Norwegian Center for Studies of Holocaust and Religious Minorities.
