Terboven and Quisling Take Control in Norway

Terboven and Quisling Take Control in Norway World War II World History Crimes and Criminals

This image depicts Josef Terboven (in the very front, wearing glasses) and Vidkun Quisling (slightly behind Terboven and wearing a suit) outside a radio station in Oslo, Norway.

Hitler selected Terboven to take control in Norway, following the German invasion of April 1940, with orders to report directly to him. Quisling, an individual whom Norwegians consider to be a traitor, had assumed power in a Nazi-backed coup at the start of the German invasion.

The photograph is maintained at the National Archives of Norway where it has this description:

Vidkun Quisling and Reichskommissar Terboven outside NRK building for the broadcast speech.  1940/09/25-27 (September 25-27, 1940).
