My Story – Personal accounts from and about 22 July
Steinar Barstad worked at the Ministry of Health and Care. On 22 July, he left his office in the S block, and walked across Einar Gerhardsen's place a few minutes before the bomb went off. A few weeks later, he wrote the poem "The Year of the Rose", as part of his work on processing grief and anger.
Steven Wiee is from Stavanger. He joined AUF in 2008 and participated in the summer camp on Utøya in 2011 for the first time. He was then 18 years old. He was very much looking forward to the summer idyll and politics on the island. But it ended up being a nightmare. He is currently a stand-up comedian and will finish his nursing education in a few years.
