A Waffen-SS photographer poses for the camera. This photo is said to be of the Norwegian SS-Unterscharführer and SS-Kriegsbericheter Arild Hamsun (1914 – 1988), son of the famous Nobel Prize winner Knut Hamsun. Hamsun served together with SS-Untersturmführer Björn Sveinsson Björnsson (1909 – 1998), son of the wartime Icelandic President, in SS-Standarte Kurt Eggers. Hamsun received the Iron Cross 2nd Class on October 1943. Björnsson was attached to SS-Division Wiking (Regiment Nordland) on the advance on Rostov-on-Don, Kuran Valley and the Kaucasus-mountains. After World War II Björnsson worked at Encyclopaedia Britannica and wrote a book entitled Ævi mín og sagan sem ekki mátti segja (My life and a story not allowed to be told). Image: Public domain.

    Seria bueno publicar el obituario, que pronunció su padre,el premio nobel Knut Hamsun, sobre la muerte de Hitler. Entre otras cosas dijo: "Hitler fue un luchador por el bien de la Humanidad".
