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:

Maybe i get you wrong, but of course Swinemünde was german territory at that time.

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.
