World War 2 in Gdansk tour

The small peninsula of Westerplatte is a symbolic place where World War 2 began. Now we know that actually a few minutes earlier the first shots were fired in another Polish city. For Adolf Hitler, Westerplatte was a very important target since he wanted Gdansk to only be  German and not a Free City as it had been between the first and Second World Wars. The Nazis were so confident of rapidly defeating the 200 Polish soldiers that on the 1st of September 1939, the morning newspapers already announced that the battle for Westerplatte was over. In fact they ended up fighting for 7 long days.

During our trip we will see some remaining barracks and ruins of blockhouses. I will show you how it looked during the first days of September 1939. After visiting Westerplatte we will go to the Old Town of Gdansk to see the Post Office building which was also attacked by Nazis on the 1st of September 1939 and its defenders were sentenced to death by judges even though such sentences did not exist in the laws of the Free City of Gdansk.
