Wilhelm Gustloff
Message Board

July 25, 2010

Someone told me about the Wilhelm Gustloff and it sounds like the boat my grandparents were on. Not sure how this would tie in because they were leaving Estonia and were supposed to meet my dad in Germany. Dad actually got word from one of the "handful of survivors" that knew his parents and said they did not survive. Their names were Juhan and Heljo Kaarma from Tallinn Estonia (not sure if the first name spellings are exact).  I have googled myself dizzy trying to find a passenger list but to no avail. Do you have any advice on how to go about this? I would be grateful for any information you could provide.

Kind Regards,
Linda Kaarma

Haben Sie Info für mich, wer die Wilhelm Gustloff mit den Rettungsbooten ausgerüstet hat? Welche Werft hat
die Rettungsboote gebaut?

"Could you please tell me how many lifeboats the Wilhelm Gustloff was equipped with and what shipyard
built the lifeboats?"

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
Hans- Joachim Jensch
