Area Norwegian community celebrates Sonya Heine


Rockford's Norwegian community celebrates the life of a famous ice skater.

Sonya Henie was Norway's most famous ice skater as well as a Hollywood actress.

An hour long documentary style presentation enabled guests to relive Sonya's days as "Queen of the Ice".

The event was held at the sons of Norway Valhall Lodge.

An event publicist filled us in on Sonya's connection with Adolph Hitler.
