Schlesien hit a mine on May 3, 1945 and was grounded to avoid sinking at Zinnowitz, Germany. The wreck was blown up on May 4, 1945 and was scrapped on site between 1949-1956.

Schleswig-Holstein was bombed and sunk on Dec. 18, 1944 at Gotenhafen (Gdynia), Poland. The ship sank in
shallow water on an even keel but was damaged by a fire two days later and abandoned. The wreck was blown
up on Mar. 21, 1945 but raised by the Soviets in 1946 and possibly renamed Borodino. She was scuttled for
use as a target off Odsmussar Island in the Baltic Sea. It is possible that the wreck is still there.
