The German invasion of Norway in 1940 met substantial resistance but there was also support among segments of the public. About 15,000 Norwegians volunteered for combat duty with the Wehrmacht, and 6,000 saw action as part of SS operations. In September 2008, as part of a renewed effort to confront this controversial chapter of the country’s history, the Norwegian Kaprolat Committee sought the assistance of ICMP to resolve the fate of Norwegians who fought in the SS and to uphold the right of citizens to know the truth about the fate of missing family members.

ICMP assisted Norway in identifying 14 individuals.
