Originalbeskrivelse:The small township of Kautokeino in the county of Finnmark is today in a derelict state. The characteristic church, all the official buildings and private homes were razed to the ground by the Germans when they retreated from the area. About 2000 of the population are today living in the mountains in earth huts and tents. Picture shows a wrecked German car left by the occupation troops.
