Silent Refuge

The Azrieli Foundation | The Azrieli Series of Holocaust Survivor Memoirs


In 1940 in the remote village of Rogne, Norway, eleven-year-old Margrit Rosenberg and her parents believe that they have finally found the safety that has eluded them since fleeing from Germany two years earlier. What could go wrong in a tiny village? But after war breaks out in Norway and anti-Jewish persecution escalates, the Rosenbergs must spend their winters in an even more secluded refuge – a small, rudimentary cabin in the mountains accessible only on skis. At first, in a landscape frozen in time, the isolation offers relative security and tranquility.

But two years later, as the Nazis begin to arrest and deport the Jews of Oslo, the Rosenbergs are forced to make a fateful decision to trust the Resistance and plan a dangerous escape from Nazi-occupied Norway to neutral Sweden.

Margrit Rosenberg Stenge was born in Cologne, Germany, on December 27, 1928. In early 1943, she and her family reached safety in Alingsås, Sweden. Margrit moved back to Oslo in 1945, married in 1949 and immigrated to Canada, settling in Montreal in 1951. Margrit worked in administration for forty years, after which she translated six books from Norwegian to English, including Counterfeiter: How a Norwegian Jew Survived the Holocaust by Moritz Nachtstern (2008). Margrit and her husband, Stefan, live in Montreal.
