Overview Farlig oppdrag

Astrid Linderud was six when war broke out and by the time she was eight, she was already doing her bit by delivering bread and packages to the resistance movement. Later, she also guided refugees across the border to Sweden.

Astrid’s story is full of exciting episodes, fear, courage and wisdom. Through Astrid, we gain insight into what life was like in wartime for the children of resistance members – and realise just how much courage and hope it took to do this vital work.
