World War II

share

September 1, 1939, is forever etched in the history books as the day the world went to war. The world would never be the same again, and it started here with Danzig/Gdansk as the opening gambit in Hitler’s vile master plan. The city and its people were to pay an incredibly high price and once war was over, there was little of the city or few of its people left. Many of the places involved in key events during the war have either been rebuilt or their remains preserved and the city is building a Museum of the Second World War as a further attempt to preserve the memory of what began here for future generations to learn from.
