22. juli-Senteret Oslo Reviews
Touching memorial Aug 02, 2016
Walking around Oslo I passed some road barriers. Suddenly I saw a vitrine with broken glass and old newspapers of 22 July 2011. I looked around and suddenly I realised that this is the place (Regjeringskvartalet) where Anders Breivik used a car bomb tot start Norwegians most dramatic day.
Underneath the high rise building that is covered with windows printed on mash (the building is still waiting for renovation), there is the 22 July Information Center (Norwegian: 22. juli-senteret) is a Norwegian governmental information center on the terrorist attack on Norway on 22 July 2011 in Oslo and at Utøya, Norway.
You get a short introduction and can see pictures of (most) casualties (mainly young Norwegian shot at Utoya). The partly collapsed building, the remains of the car. A collection of mobile phones. The police id that Breivik used. And pics and information of the memorials and the trial. Most shocking is a video where someone tells his day with finding more and more casualties and kids in shock.
Because there is a lot of discussion about the renovation/newal of the complex, they expect to start works from 2020.
The center is free and open every day.
