    Aurora and barrack

     
    In World War II the British and American armies
    occupying Iceland built extensive barrack quarters in
    Reykjavik and elsewhere. There were hundreds of
    these barracks sheltering thousands of soldiers
    which also worked and exercised in these buildings.
    In some places army hospitals were erected with
    checkpoints. The British army left and the Americans
    replaced them in the summer of 1941. When the
    soldiers moved out of the barracks Icelandic families
    started moving in using the barracks both as housing
    facilities and as warehouses until well into the sixties
