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, the cabinet and members of parliament escaped by moving to Hamar, Elverum and Trysil. These key events allowed Norway to maintain a legitimate government in exile during the Nazi occupation. The parliament meeting at Elverum gave the cabinet full authority over the government of Norway as long as the parliament was not able to convene in ordinary session. More than 5 years would pass until the parliament could again convene.
