“Padua”/”Kruzenshtern” during the Second World War

A lot of literature states that the “Padua” in 1940 was reduced to a barge pulled by a steam tug. However that's not quite accurate. Now we publish the story, as told by the sister-in-law and sons of the then Chief Mate John Jungblut, who spent a lot of time on board “Padua” until 1945, by the son of the then Second Mate Winfried Behrens and by one of the few sailors still alive, Wolfhardt “Oenschi” Schoenfeld.
