“We all need somebody to talk to. It would be good if we talked... not just pitter-patter, but real talk. We shouldn't be so afraid, because most people really like this contact; that you show you are vulnerable makes them free to be vulnerable.”- Liv Ullmann

Incredibly brave Anne Sophie Oestvedt was one of the two women of the four leaders of WWII Norwegian resistance. Going deep undercover to lead thousands of fighters, she even stood next to her father on a tram and never let him know. Hunted by the Gestapo, she evaded capture the entire war. Although her mental & physical health suffered, she finished college in the US post WWII and returned to Norway with her husband, the XU leader Oistein Stromnes (km).
In 1940 Anne Sofie Ostvedt was a 20-year-old student at the University of Oslo when German forces invaded Norway. She wasted no time in becoming involved in the Norwegian resistance and quickly rose through the ranks to become the deputy commander of the underground intelligence-gathering resistance group XU. As a resistance leader Østvedt is among a small group of women who were top commanders of the various resistance movements throughout Europe during World War II.
