Malthe-Bruun, Kim ___ 1923-1945 ___ Danish ___ sailor

BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY
Kim Malthe-Bruun was born in Fort Saskatchewan, Canada. His mother was from Denmark and in 1929 the family moved back to Europe. When still young he signed up with the merchant navy. During the German occupation of Denmark, he joined the Danish resistance. But, in 1944, he was arrested by the Germans for being involved in the shipping of weapons from Sweden to Denmark. He was tortured and then, in 1945, executed. After the war his mother, Vibeke, arranged for the publication of 'Kim' a biographical book which contains sections of her son's diary as well as a collection of his letters.

IMPORTANT NOTES AND CAUTIONS: 1) The first line of basic information may be incomplete in several ways: some historical figures have different names (titles, pen-names); their birth and death dates may be unknown or uncertain (g - guess, c - circa); similarly, their occupations may be unknown, or they may have had other jobs; and, for early diarists, I've used 'British' a bit too freely. 2) The biographical summary may not be accurate. It was compiled quickly from various sources, mostly on the internet, and the facts were not checked anywhere near as rigorously as they would have been if they'd been intended for publication in a printed form. 3) The journal dates and descriptors (which are in no particular order) must be treated with caution: since I have not examined the diaries myself, the descriptors are only guesses based on bibliographies, anthologies and internet biographies. 4) For the biography and etext links, I have ignored any sites with charges, and I have avoided, wherever possible, those with pop-ups or too much advertising. I have limited myself to providing three etext links where there is some variety between them. 5) For the original manuscript links, I have limited myself to providing a maximum of two (although, for a few diarists, their original diaries are held in more than two places). 6) I have provided the titles - chosen randomly - for up to three printed editions of the diaries.
