cancelled memorial… why ?!
Plans to cut a “wound” into a Norwegian peninsula in memory of the victims of terrorism have been abandoned following years of opposition from locals.
The Memory Wound memorial, by Swedish artist Jonas Dahlberg, was intended to commemorate the 77 people who died in the 22 July 2011 attacks, which centred on a Workers’ Youth League summer camp on Utøya.
“We have several years of debate behind us about where to place the national memorial,” Sanner said. “We hope to now be able to put a dignified end to this debate.”
