During World War II, the Norwegian resistance group known as Milorg used Sarabråten as their training grounds and a base for smuggling refugees into Sweden. In February of 1945, two members of Milorg were killed in action, and seven more were arrested and later executed at Akershus Fortress. Every year, the Friends of Østmarka host a memorial ceremony here for the fallen Milorg members.
