Lie, Jonas (1899-1945)

Born in 1899, Lie was a professional Police officer, fanatically anti-Communist, and quite a personality. He was popular amongst the Germans, but never within his own Party. He had been member of Nasjonal Samling (NS) in the 30´s, but left the party in 1935. He probably rejoined in 1940.
He reorganised the Norwegian Police Forces in 1940-41, and served at the Front on two occasions, the first as war correspondent with “Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler”, the last serving at the Leningrad front with ”Den Norske Legion”.
He became the leader of ”Germanske SS Norge”.
Lie was awarded the Iron cross 1.class for his participartion in the battle at Leningrad.
He died from natural causes (could have been suicide) on the very same day Norway got liberated.
Født i 1899. Lie var Politioffiser, fanatisk anti-kommunist og gjorde seg bemerket hvorenn han befant seg. Han var populær i tyske kretser, men aldri i sitt eget parti. Han hadde vært medlem i NS på 30 tallet, men meldte seg ut i 1935. Han meldte seg sannsynligvis inn i partiet igjen i 1940. Lie reorganiserte den norske politistyrken i perioden 1940-41, og var ved to anledninger i fronttjeneste. Første gang som krigsreporter i LAH, "Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler". Andre gang var som offiser i "Den Norske Legion" som kjempet ved Leningrad.
Han ble leder av "Germanske SS Norge".
Lie fikk Jernkorset 1.klasse for sin innsats ved Leningrad.
Han døde av naturlige årsaker (Kan også ha vært selvmord, dette er uklart.) på samme dagen som Norge ble frigjort.
