A memorial shas been created after 2 verse churches and all 72 men between 16 and 60 in the village were sent to Sachsenhausen concentration camp, where 31 died. The rest of the people from Telavåg, including women and children, were interned at Framnes school at Norheimsund.
The closest parallels are in Lidice in the Czech Republic and Oradour-sur-Glane in France. In fact, Telavåg was one of the indictments at the Nuremberg Tribunal that concerned Norwegian conditions. The memorial stand stands next to Telavåg School and is used for commemoration every 17 May
