It is 80 years this year since Willy Brandt came to Norway for the very first time. He came to Norway and Oslo as a political refugee in 1933. He lived there until 1940 and again after the war.
Brandt's life-long fight against Nazism meant he was trusted in both Eastern and Western Europe, among the Poles and Russians, and among the French, British and Americans. Brandt was the Mayor of West Berlin during the iciest days of the Cold War. He then served as West Germany's Foreign Minister and Chancellor.
In 1971 Willy Brandt was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his policy of détente towards Eastern Europe.This small exhibition shows unique photographs and caricatures of the 1971 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.
In the Nobel Peace Center's major new photo exhibition Hungry Planet, we are invited into the kitchens of families around the world, including in Norway, to see how the food we eat affects the global environment and climate.
Photographer Peter Menzel and writer Faith D'Aluisio, both from the US, are the artists behind the exhibition.
