The Free City of Danzig (1920-1939) was a semi-autonomous city state established through the Treaty of Versailles, and governed under the auspices of the League of Nations. It was annexed by Germany at the outset of World War II (|). The Republic of Poland established a port facility in the city of Gdyina (Gotenhafen), to the north of Danzig (Gdansk), as they did not gain full access to the port.
