The fake police ID and remains of the car bomb used by Breivik are to go on display in a temporary exhibition in the government tower hit in the twin attack.
“Together with his fake ID, we also show some of these fake police badges,” said Tor Einar Fagerland, the history professor who has curating the exhibition.
“It’s physical and concrete evidence. We are not putting it on display in order to dramatise the events, but just to show that it actually happened
The information centre on the July 22 attacks will also exhibit the engine block, tyres, and parts of the bodywork from the car bomb the killer detonated under the tower, which then housed the offices of Norway's prime minister.
Knowledge is our most important weapon in the fight against violence, hatred and extremism,” Norway’s minister of Local Government Jan Tore Sanner told Norway’s Aftenposten newspaper. “That’s why we want to show exactly what happened and omit no part of the story
John Elden, the lawyer who represented 115 relatives and survivors at Breivik's trial, was sharply critical of the decision to create a Breivik museum, arguing that the Ground Zero museum in New York did not "go so far as to exhibit Bin Laden's possessions."
The Pelican-branded case Breivik used to carry spare ammunition and smoke grenades onto the island is also on display, as are as yet unpublished photographs of the mayhem in the tower minutes after the blast went off, taken by an amateur photographer who worked in security at the site.
“For anyone who lived through July 22, the events are an open wound that still hurt, but we must pass this painful part of our recent history in an honest
way. The centre shows what actually happened.
As well as being open to the general public, the exhibition will be used to educate school children
