Public Buildings and Urban Planning in Gdańsk/Danzig from 1933–1945

The article shows the development of NS-architecture and town planning in Danzig between the years 1933-1945 concerning its political, social and historical background. In two parts of the text, concerning years 1933-1939 and 1939-1945 the author shows that in many respects, Danzig may be compared to the Reich or even treated as its mirror reflection on a micro scale. To illustrate this thesis Załęska-Kaczko provides many examples of realized and unrealized plans of housing estates and monumental public architecture.
