Warplanes, shipwrecks, and bunkers: the haunting WWII relics left in Arctic Norway

January 27, 2024


In this documentary report, The Barents Observer joins divers in Tromsø to see what remains of what once was the pride of the German Nazi navy - the “Tirpitz” warship.

We also track down warplanes that flew the skies above northern Norway 80 years ago. And also discover abandoned ammunition stores, bunkers and trenches that once formed part of the German fortifications in Kirkenes, close to the former border with Soviet Russia. 

We go on a research to understand how the war heritage is still impacting the local environment today.

The documentary is produced with the aim of historical research and education.

The video is in English with Russian subtitles.
