I was walking around in Prague, on my way to check out a famous tattoo shop, slightly hung over from the drinks that I had with my hosts the night before. Then all of a sudden I stumbled upon this film set where some Chinese film crew were making a movie. The film was about some Chinese guys (I’m assuming they were the heroes of the story) and it had something to do with Nazis, so there was all these swastikas, men in Nazi-uniforms, old cars and other Nazi effects scattered all around.
At Solli’s Plass (Solli’s Square) in Oslo you’ll find these swastikas in the wrought iron gate of Sommerogata 1. Originally this apartment building was built for Oslo Lysverker (one of Oslo’s power companies) in 1931, and the arrchitects Andreas Bjerke and Gerog Eliassen won a price for good architecture. At the time Norwegians and Europeans didn’t have the same connotations towards Swastikas like they have today. The swastikas can still be seen in Sommerogata 1 today.
