Page from volume two of a set of scrapbooks compiled by Bjorn Sibbern, a Danish policeman and resistance member, documenting the German occupation of Denmark.

This page contains a document about a Danish resistance fighter trained in England who was sent back to Denmark to fight. His parachute did not open, and he died on impact. It is from the D.P.E. or Danske Politi Efterretninger, the internal police newspaper. The photo on the bottom left shows how the fighter had a gun strapped to his body which was designed to shoot automatically if the man surrendered.
