    When the war was over, the Jewish population in Trondheim was halved. The few Jews who returned to the city, either from captivity or flight, now stood on bare ground. Both assets and properties were taken from them during the war, and this they did not get back after the liberation.
    Through interviews with contemporary witnesses and descendants, Kari Melhuus Jenssen has made a performance that addresses the Jews' returned to Trondheim in 1945. This is her graduation performance from NTNU.

    Location: Synagogue, Architect Christies gate 1B
