German communist and resistance fighter against National Socialism (Nazism), also noted as the older brother of East German 'First Lady' Lotte Ulbricht. He is the subject of the 1970 biography, Er war Pionierleiter: Leben und Kampf des Berliner Arbeiterjungen Bruno Kühn (Pioneer leader: The life and struggle of the Berlin worker boy Bruno Kühn) written by Dietrich Nummert.

From 1918 he was a member of the German Communist Party (KPD). During the Weimar Republic, he worked as an official of the Communist Youth Association of Germany (KJVD) in 1920 in the field of youth work. During the Spanish Civil War he was a member of the International Brigades.

During World War II he went to the Soviet Union to fight as a partisan in the Wehrmacht's hinterland. There are different statements about the time and circumstances of Bruno Kühn's death. In the history of the GDR it was common to say that he died in Belarus in August 1941. Later, however, there were indications that he was arrested as a "parachute agent" by the Gestapo in Amsterdam in August 1943 and shot in Brussels in 1944.

In the GDR, several schools, a department of the border troops of the GDR, two torpedo speedboats of the People's Navy and a barracks as well as a regiment of the National People's Army (NVA) bear his name.
