  • Background
    A year ago a horrible event occured in Norway. A right-winged extremist bombed a goverment building in Oslo, the capital of Norway, and continued up to Utøya - a small island owned by Workers' Youth League (AUF), which at the time hosted an annual summer camp. At the island he continued his terrorist actions, which all resultated in a total loss of 77 souls - most of them under the age of 30.

    As I'm living in Denmark, fairly close to Norway, I couldn't help being affected by the horrible story, which filled the news in weeks afterwards. One of the stories that particularly got to me, was a quote from one of the survivors of the island Utøya, who said:

    "if one man can show so much hate, think how much love we all can show."

    The quote was later repeated in a memorial speech by Jens Stoltenberg, Prime minister of Norway.

    The quote inspired me to make this poster, which is a big heartshaped Norwegian flag over a silhuet of the island of Utøya.

    The text is all in Norwegian with the quote in top and below it says
    Norway 22 · 07 · 11
    in memory of the victims in Oslo and on Utøya
