In her book “One of us” Norwegian author Åsne Seierstad tells the story of Anders Breivik and the massacre that left 76 mostly young people dead on July 22, 2011 – Norway’s greatest peacetime trauma.
The European Court of Human Rights found Anders Breivik's jail conditions did not violate the European Convention on Human Rights. Breivik is serving 21 years for a bomb and shooting attack that killed 77 people in Oslo.
Asne Seierstad has written books on personalities in conflict. She looks at Norwegian mass murder Anders Breivik with the same, unjudging eye as two women who became Islamists. Judgment, she told DW, is for her readers.
John Ausonius has received a second life sentence for the murder of a Jewish woman in Frankfurt. Ausonius' attacks on immigrants in the 90s are thought to have inspired other far-right "lone wolves," like Anders Breivik.
Authorities in Oslo were ready to change plans for the memorial near Utoya island, the government said, after local residents rejected the idea. The locals say they do not want a constant reminder of the tragedy.
