Overview Lena fra Tysfjord

Since news of the extensive cases of abuse in Tysfjord broke, many people have been asking themselves the following questions: ”How could it happen? And how could scepticism towards the establishment persist for generations?”

Lena from Tysfjord takes readers one and two generations back in time, giving an insight into what it was like to be part of the Lule Sami community in Tysfjord. Norwegianization policy, racial hatred and racism are just as relevant today as they were in those times for minorities in the Norwegian population.

Lena from Tysfjord is the follow-up to The Dark Secret of Tysfjord, in which Liv tells her story. In the new book, the narrative voice is that of Lena, Liv’s mother.
