Frogner Park is home to the Vigeland Sculptural Arrangement. There are over 200 statues by Vigeland spread throughout the park. Many are irreverent and modern, some are thought-provoking and one statue called “Surprise” should break your heart. The model, Ruth Maier, was sent to Oslo by her parents in 1939 to protect her from the rise of Hitler. Three years later she was dragged from her home by Norwegian police and handed over to the Nazis. Ruth would be murdered five days later in Auschwitz. This statue gives viewers a rare opportunity to remember how this twenty-two year old Jewish girl’s life disappeared from the face of the earth.
