The apology comes after writers Einar O. Risa and Jan Erik Vold called for a more active involvement from the NSB and the police for their role in the deportations.
The NSB made available wagons that transported detainees Jews from the labor camp Berg at Tønsberg, until the pier in Oslo where the cargo ship Donau transported Jews access to German concentration camps.
The authors Einar O. Risa and Jan Erik Vold has been involved in the case and called for a greater involvement from both NSB and the police for their role in the deportations, Dagsavisen writes.
Risa believes NSB has done little for to clarify what happened when the Norwegian Jews were sent to their deaths with the help of NSB . NSB responds to criticism with regret for its role in the deportations.
– It is clear that the persecution and deportation of Jews is a dark chapter in Norwegian history which Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg apologized last year. NSB’s participation in this story ais regrettable, says NSB communications manager Åge-Christoffer Lundeby.
He says this is as far as one can get an apology from the NSB side.
Risa is critical of what he calls the “regret industry.”
– We do not primarily needs these regrets. We need knowledge of what happened when the Norwegian Jews were deported. It is sad that not this story to a larger extent has been written down. I call for a greater willingness among historians to go into this material. And it would be becoming of NSB to show interest, for example, by hiring historians or sponsoring projects on this story. But NSB has not been interested in this story. It is probably due to ignorance, says Risa.
Risa, I think the reason why the NSB is unwilling to take a more critical look at their own actions, is simply that the NSB’s many and various union factions take great delight in singling Israel and Jews out for a very peculiar treatment, frequently passing motions to call for boycotts of Israel and even stopping trains in support of Palestinians when they are busy blowing Israelis to bits
