A film crew from Norway, led by director Kjetil Palmkuist, which is shooting a film about the suffering of Serbs in the camps of this Scandinavian country during the Second World War, is working extensively in Serbia.
As “Novosti” has learned, the conversation with the former citizen of Belgrade, Milorad Čebić, left them speechless, because this man, who is 86 years old, had as many as five uncles killed in the Norwegian death camp in Karašjok.
The testimonies of the descendants of the killed Serbs and many other materials have already been recorded in Belgrade, Kragujevac and Nis. They worked at locations in Norway and other fields for months, and behind them are years of research and conversations with witnesses of the great suffering of our compatriots in the death camp in Karasjok.
Branko Dimeski, the film’s producer, says they have spoken to numerous historians, witnesses and people who have data or are descendants of victims in Norway. He also explains that before they hit the last klapa, they will have to come to Serbia at least one more time.
– Cebic’s story left us all without text. We listened to horrible details, but looking into the eyes of a man who talks in detail about the suffering in Croatia, and then about how his five uncles ended up in a camp in Norway, and did not return from there, can not leave anyone indifferent – says Dimeski.
It is interesting that it was agreed in principle that the film, whose premiere in Norway is expected next year as part of the celebration of 80 years of suffering of Serbian detainees in this Scandinavian country, will have its Serbian premiere at the “Film Meetings” in Nis.
