Mark Oppenheimer was surprised to find how the scandal impacted those involved, almost 60 years later.
Reading a statement during his trial in Oslo, the man accused of killing 77 people in Norway last July said, “These acts are based on goodness not evil.”
Anders Breivik told the court he acted to defend Norway against immigration and multi-culturalism.
The anti-Muslim extremist lashed out at Norwegian and European governments. He claimed to be speaking as a commander of an “anti-communist” resistance movement and an anti-Islam militant group he called the Knights Templar.
