Fronten (English: The Front) was a Norwegian newspaper.
It was published by national socialist Eugen Nielsen from 1932 to 1940. In the beginning, it was published biweekly, but gradually this became more sporadic. Nielsen's primary interest, which was reflected in the publications, was attacking freemasonry.
Nielsen cooperated with the short-lived National Socialist Workers' Party of Norway (Norges Nasjonalsosialistiske Arbeiderparti), and was, therefore, critical to the rivalling national socialist party Nasjonal Samling. With Nasjonal Samling seizing power in Norway in the autumn of 1940, during the German occupation of Norway, Fronten eventually ceased to exist. Nielsen continued as an Anti-Masonry consultant for the Sicherheitsdienst.
Adolf Egeberg Jr. (30 September 1909 – 22 June 1972) was a Norwegian journalist and national socialist. Egeberg worked as a correspondent for Nationen in Germany circa 1930, and he took courses in the SA in Munich, and SS in Berlin. He was involved in the short-lived Norwegian fascist party National Legion in 1927–28, before he founded the National Socialist Workers' Party of Norway (NNSAP) in 1930, modelled on the German Nazi Party (NSDAP). He gained financial support for his party from Eugen Nielsen, publisher of Fronten, in 1932. Egeberg left the party to join the founding of Nasjonal Samling (NS) in 1933, and got a position as editor of Vestlandets Avis (1934–36), the NS-paper published in Stavanger. He was part of a circle, some of whom founded the periodical Ragnarok, that sought to push NS in a national socialist direction.He died in 1972 and is buried at Vestre gravlund.Aller Media

Georg Eugen Nielsen (1884 – 11 July 1963) was a Norwegian architect, publisher and activist.
He was an architect by profession, but was wealthy and had time to pursue an interest in writing and publishing. He published the biweekly newspaper Fronten from 1932. Fronten was an organ for the short-lived National Socialist Workers' Party of Norway, and Nielsen was skeptical to Nasjonal Samling. His main interest was exposing what he perceived as the evils of Freemasonry.During the occupation of Norway by Nazi Germany, Nasjonal Samling people assumed political office. Nielsen never joined the party, but backed up part of it, specifically pan-Germanist fractions. He was set to administer the ownings of the Norwegian Order of Freemasons after it was closed down, and worked as an Anti-Freemasonry consultant for the Sicherheitsdienst. He attempted to stigmatize people in the Nasjonal Samling leadership with Freemasonry allegations.During the legal purge in Norway after World War II he managed to get his case delayed until 1950, after first having been arrested between 13 May 1945 and 1946. He died in 1963, and left behind a sizeable collection of weapons. Parts of the collection was sold in 1993 at Christie's. Money was channeled to a foundation Arkitekt Eugen Nielsens Stiftelse, which among others supported Arnfinn Moland with 50,000 kr to write the strongly Nazi-critical book Over grensen?

He finished his secondary education in Hamar in 1900, and then attended the Norwegian Military Academy for one year. He then enrolled at the Royal Frederick University and graduated with the cand.jur. degree in 1907.He contributed to the newspaper Fri Presse until it went defunct in 1908. He was hired by Amandus Schibsted as a journalist in Aftenposten. He studied in France for some time, returning in 1911, but he was sent back as a correspondent in December 1913. He was especially active during the First World War, becoming a prolific war correspondent. He held two nationwide lecture tours on the war in 1915 and 1919, and issued the books Fra Paris og Frankriges front under krigen (1916) and Fortellinger fra fronten (1928). In 1919 he succeeded Ola Christofersen as co-editor-in-chief of Aftenposten. He became sole editor in 1925 when Thorstein Diesen died. Frøisland became known for expanding the journalistic efforts of the newspaper, and starting the weekly A-magasinet.In the Norwegian parliamentary election, 1927 he was fielded as the second ballot candidate for the party National Legion, behind Karl Meyer and ahead of Thorvald Aadahl and Jens Bratlie. In a press release, the National Legion (led by Meyer) stated that it had cherrypicked "strong" personalities to combat the hardships in Norwegian politics. Frøisland denounced the ballot in an Aftenposten piece, stating that himself, Aadahl and Bratlie were unwilling and unaware of the nomination. He stated that a vote for the National Legion would be a wasted vote in the ongoing struggle against the "communists". However, according to Norwegian election law the people who were listed on the ballot had no legal grounds to avoid being nominated. The National Legion did not win any seats.
In May 1919, Frøisland married the pianist Astrid Helene Fagstad (1885–1945). Frøisland died in January 1930 in Oslo.Jordanian National Liberation Movement

Party of the Swedes (Swedish: Svenskarnas parti, SvP) was a neo-Nazi political party in Sweden. The party described itself as nationalist and sought to limit Swedish citizenship only to individuals who belong to the "Western genetic and cultural legacy". From 2013 to 2015 the party leader was Stefan Jacobsson. The party dissolved on 10 May 2015 due to lack of members.The Ægishjálmur rune was the official SVP symbol since it originated as Folkfronten ("the people's front"), a neo-Nazi party founded in 2008 by members of the National Socialist Front (NSF), the largest Swedish Nazi party at the time. The current name was introduced in 2009 after socialist activists registered NSF's name with the Election Authority of Sweden, blocking its use.
The party's only electoral success was one municipal mandate in 2010 in the small community of Grästorp in Västra Götaland in western Sweden. The mandate was lost after it was revealed that their representative, Daniel Höglund, was not registered as a resident, which is a requirement for members of municipal councils in Sweden.

The Sint-Lambertuskerk (St. Lambert's) is a former church in the city of Maastricht, Limburg, Netherlands.
At the time of its completion in 1916, St. Lambert's was the first church in Maastricht outside the Medieval city wall. The location of the church was in the so-called Hoge Fronten, an area that for centuries was used for building fortifications, both above ground and below ground. The latter turned out to be a liability for the building's stability.
The church was designed by Hubert van Groenendael in neo-Romanesque style on a cruciform plan. it was built between 1914 and 1916. The church was named after the Maastricht-born saint Lambert, bishop of Maastricht and Liège in the 7th and 8th century. For 70 years the church was operated as a Roman Catholic parish church.
Soon after its completion in 1916, subsidence cracks developed in the structure. Ten years later, the church was restored and no further damage occurred until 1970. Beginning in 1970, portions of the structure began to sag and new cracks developed. From 1985, the building was no longer used as a church. The parish moved to the nearby St. Ann's Church in the same neighbourhoud of Brusselsepoort.
