On 9 April 1940, the German war machine arrives in the city of Oslo. The Norwegian king faces a choice that will change his country forever – whether to submit to the German invasion and install a puppet government answering to Hitler or to enter into a hopeless war of resistance that will cost many lives, as well as Norway’s staunchly defended neutrality.
The Scandinavian House in cooperation with Evald Cinema presents THE KING’S CHOICE, a Norwegian historical film.
The screening will be introduced by a short lecture.
