Welcome to Danzig

Although this website is a work in progress you can already see several contributions made by Arge Danzig, Danzig Report, The Danzig Philatelist, and the Polish P.W.F. Ziemia Gdańska.

We have several collections and exhibits, miscellaneous items and pictures on the website covering Free City Danzig and Danzig postcards and Danzig history. More information on Danzig covers, Danzig cancels and Danzig articles is in the pipeline.

If you would like to be informed of the changes, please register and we will send you site information when it becomes available.

We are still looking for materials and articles in English, German and Polish and for volunteers for translations into or from Polish, German and English. If you would like to help to make this a unique philatelic and historical website please contact us.

We are always looking for interesting articles and stories about Danzig and its surroundings. We will publish them on the website to make it a mutual tool for our hobby, know-how and as a great source of information for all collectors, students and visitors.

To overcome borders, seas, oceans and language barriers we will attempt to make the site, articles and stories multilingual whenever we can.
