Nyheder fra storbritanien

Object | Accession Number: 1989.297.66

An underground newspaper, Nyheder fra Storbritanien, acquired by Knud Dyby while he was a member in several Danish underground resistance organizations during World War II. This was one of many underground publications that grew out of increased demand for information as German authorities increased censorship in the final years of the war. In April 1940, Germany invaded and occupied Denmark, which prompted a growing demand for information about the war and the need for newspapers. Many underground publications were created as part of a robust resistance and sabotage movement in the nation. Dyby worked with the Danish underground during the occupation of Denmark. He used knowledge and skills gained from his prewar printing and advertising business, sailing expertise, and King’s Royal Guard service as well as his wartime position with the Danish police force to transmit intelligence data and arrange for boats to ferry refugees, including Jewish families, from Denmark to Sweden. He immigrated to the United States after the war.
