Ok, getting back to what I'm interested in:

Very interesting little ship! Had never heard of her before. She was built in 1944 by the Lindenau yard in Memel (now Klaipeda) as the Germany minesweeper M295 "Horn". Rebuilt as a passenger ship after WW2. Stayed in service till 1965, then laid up till 1980, when she was scrapped at Gdansk.

Quite a story, huh? I wish I had some materials on that German minesweeper so I could draw it...

Polish wiki says 1940

Update: thanks for the hint, I think I can do my own research now ;)
