In a previous post, I speculated on Kim Jong Il’s whereabouts in the late 1950s.  Here at last is the original document (in the “unofficial translation,” followed by Kim Il Song’s original) which prompted that speculation. This also answers reader Ernst’s original question about the date: it was indeed 1956 in the first case, and the 1960 correspondence was about a delegation to Leipzig which would not include Kim Il Sung.  Error corrected! Thanks also […]
