In 1908, the workers in the docks of Malmö went on strike for better conditions. British strikebreakers were called in and lived on the ship Amalthea. On the night between 11 and 12 July 1908, young socialist Anton Nilson and two others placed a bomb on the ship, killing one and wounding 23.
Nilson was sentenced to death but pardoned. He was released from prison in 1917 after worker’s protests as a way to quell revolutionary tendencies in Sweden during the Russian Revolution. Nilson died 1989, 101 years old, revered as one of the Swedish Labour Movement’s heroes.
