Personal information

Daughter of Laura Johnsen, of Ålesund. She also survived the sinking of the Norwegian motor merchant Talabot, which was struck by bombs during an air raid in the harbor of Valletta, Malta on 26 March 1942 and had to be scuttled to prevent the explosion of its cargo of ammunition and fuel. Prior to the risky voyage to Malta the master of the ship and the Norwegian consul in Alexandria had offered Margit to leave, but she answered: If my boys are going to die, I'll be there with them. It can not be harder for me to die than it is for them.
