In this article, I will address the controversies about symbolism and war memorials from the perspective of Polish veterans that chose to remain in Norway after the Second World War. Having a father that was active during the war I experienced his involvement with close Polish friends that had been part of the Polish forces fighting in the west. My father’s Polish friends were proud of their war effort none of them talked about post – traumatic experienced, but several were bitter about the fate of Poland after the Second World War and all of them had great distrust of the communist government in Warsaw.
