Elverum is a city in Hedmark with almost 14,000 inhabitants.
Elverum was the first town to be destroyed at the beginning of World War II. During the first dramatic days of the German invasion in 1940 the king and the cabinet escaped by moving to Hamar, Elverum and Trysil. These key events allowed Norway to maintain a legitimate government in exile during the Nazi occupation.
