Help me with naming this boat?
« on: March 25, 2011, 05:02:44 »

Okay so i was watching this documentary on a ship that sunk of the coast of Germany. They were trying to evacuate the city because the allied forces where appoaching the city. It capsized and if i remember it was hit by a torpedo. It also had glass on the promonade decks so many passengers couldnt get out. Any idea what the ships name is? Thanks :2thumbs:

I think it's the documentary about the Wilhelm Gustloff.
That documentary was called 'Sinking Hitler's super ship' I believe, it's quiet a long time ago when I saw it.
