Book Reports: CALL OF THE TOAD GUNTHER GRASS and DANZIG / GDANSK: NATIONAL IDENTITY IN THE POLISH-GERMAN BORDERLANDS BY Carl Tighe

Countdown to 1939
We’re still grinding to the 55th anniversary of the September 1st invasion of Poland and the absorption of Danzig into the Reich. On the 3rd of April, Hitler issued the Case White directives, which included three possibilities: (1) war with Poland; (2) defense of the German frontiers; and (3) limited action to seize Danzig without rousing the Allies. The Schleswig-Holstein was still being used as a training ship and wasn’t yet considered for the Danzig visit. In April and May, the SA brownshirts stepped up their activities in Danzig and ammunition was being smuggled into the city.

Activities in 1994
Perhaps 1994 could be called “THE YEAR OF THE DANZIGER”, since so many trips and meetings are planned for those with the Danzig / Gdansk Syndrome. Giles du Boulay will be in Danzig during the week of May 23rd; (apparently Pam twisted his arm and voted for Gdansk over Venice). We will be in Danzig the following week, after the ARGE meeting in Hamm-Pelkum, Germany on Saturday, May 28th.

Keep in mind the big GPS Convention at Hunt Valley, north of Baltimore, over the Labor Day weeke nd! Contact Steve Dembo, 6112 Deer Park Road, Reisterstown MD 21 136.JUse BWI airport.) Steve’s phone number is (410) 526-3932. Also coming up are the Donaueschingen excursion starting on Sept. 2lst and the Germany & Colonies Philatelic Society convention in Newcastle September 23-25.
