Rasmus Rasmussen

Common labour and culture have always interacted in such a way that the conditions under which people live leave their marks. 

This interconnectedness marks an era and its people, and when living conditions change, a new age emerges. 

These sea changes define our history. 

Pupils are taught many things but the humdrum of the everyday life of ordinary people is often neglected. Therefore, the knowledge of how one generation lived is often not passed on to the next. And that is a shame. 

Rasmus Rasmussen, a key figure in the revival of Faroese culture and identity, wanted with this book to paint a picture of how life was lived in his childhood and youth. On the style and content, he comments: “I realise that my view receives its hues and colours from the gleam that my childhood and youth cast on life then. That can’t be changed.”
