: Picture caption: "Unter dem Jubel der Danziger Bevölkerung wird das Schulschiff der deutschen Kriegsmarine 'Schleswig-Holstein' von den Hochseeschleppern 'Albert Forster' und 'Danzig' in den Danziger Hafen eingebracht." Note 2.) This old "pre-dreadnought" battleship was one of the few ships the German navy had been allowed to keep after World War I. It would fire the first shots of World War II when it began shelling the Polish fort of Westerplatte, near Danzig, early on September 1, 1939. Note 3.) Title translates German picture caption
