Trandum is a village in Akershus, Norway.

The woods near Trandum were an infamous site of execution of political prisoners during the Occupation of Norway by Nazi Germany. In 1945 a total of 194 bodies were found in mass graves in the woods of Trandum, including 173 Norwegians, six British and fifteen Soviet citizens.[1] Those who could be identified were exhumed and placed in individual graves (see Bjarne Dalland).
