Vilmos Böhm

Vilmos Böhm or Wilhelm Böhm (}

}}: Böhm (Bőhm) Vilmos; 6 January 1880, Budapest – 28 October 1949) was a Hungarian Social Democrat and Hungary's ambassador to Sweden after World War II. He is supposedly mentioned in the Venona telegrams as an information source of the soviets during the war. According to one researcher, Wilhelm Agrell, he was a soviet spy, a statement which has been contested in a trial, after Agrell was sued by Böhms grandchildren Thomas and Stefan Böhm for defamtion of deceased. According to Sweden's liberal laws Agrell was acquitted, although he could not produce any other evidence than the mentioning of Vilmos Böhm in the Venona telegrams, where many state leaders and politicians were mentioned under aliases.
