Wilhelm Gustloff Anniversary

Exactly 68 years ago to the minute (running on Eastern time) the Wilhelm Gustloff sank beneath the waves in the Baltic Sea nearly killing 10,000 people. A horrible tragedy everyone should hear of and no one should forget. :[]

Unknown Kriegsmarine Ships & Aviso Grille

If anyone knows these ships or harbor, please let me know. Wilhelm Gustloff Museum . com website Photo...

Pillau 1942 Photo Album

I recently posted a photo album from Pillau in May of 1942. I have attempted to read the backs of some of the photos, but I cannot distinguish letters aside from the back of the two Robert Ley photos just from seeing the words so many times. There are several images I would love to know more about -...

Signature Translation

This is the online photo of an item I recently got and I am wondering if anyone knows who it may be? It's from an invitation for a technical cruise of the KdF ship Robert Ley from 1939. Thought is may be Dr. Ley, but not similar to his other signatures I've seen. Thanks!

Re: Word Translation

Thank you for the information. These pictures are from her trip to Stockholm, Sweden and this is the last day of the trip. I assumed she was Sweden yet, but maybe this was a stop on the return home.

Re: Word Translation

That would make sense, thanks. It shows the Wilhelm Gustloff berthed there. I find it interesting that she would be tied up in a country that wasn't an axis ally, unless the photos are her returning to Hamburg from the port. :up:

Re: Identify this ship and place?

Thank you for the identifications. Most of the rolls I have are of family life, but one had men in uniform and the ships, the other were these buildings.
