The doors I have chosen to show this time, was taken last Friday on my way to the afternoon drink.
First we passed the open door/gate to the Norwegian Nobel Committee. The commitee awards the Nobel Peace Prize each year. Its five members are appointed by the Norwegian parliament.
Fifty meters from the peace offices we have a special memory linked to the second world war. The gate to "Sommerrogata 1" is covered with the Swastika.
Archaeological evidence of swastika-shaped ornaments dates from the Neolithic period. It occurs mainly in the modern day culture of India, sometimes as a geometrical motif and sometimes as a religious symbol. It remains widely used in Eastern religions / Dharmic religion such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.
This iron gate is from 1931 and thus before the nazi occupation of Norway, and (I believe) therefore not removed or changed.The third door is the entrance to "fru Burum´s" with the opening hours written in a copper plate. Inside you will find a special environment, friendly people and good drinks. Hope to see you there.
