The exhibition presents the 11 saboters who participated in the action, what role and military degree they had and what they did after the action.

It will be placed in Café Vemork and the audience will be able to experience the saboteurs close by. 

Operation Gunnerside was a success. Under the leadership of fJoachim Rønneberg, the sabotagers managed to sneak into the heavy water fabric and blow out the heavy water system.
