Auf dem langen Markt in Danzig fand nach Abschluß der Kämpfe eine Parade der Marinetruppen statt." Note 2.) Westerplatte was a Polish military base near Danzig which was attacked in the opening battle of World war II. Its small garrison withstood attacks from land, sea and air for a week (September 1-7, 1939) before surrendering to much superior German forces. Note 3.) Title translates German picture caption
