January 15. 1923

Lithuanians decided to stage the Klaipėda Revolt, take the region by force, and present the Entente with fait accompli. The revolt was carried out in January 1923 while western Europe was distracted by the occupation of the Ruhr. The Germans tacitly supported the action, while the French offered only limited resistance. The League of Nations protested the revolt, but accepted the transfer in February 1923. The formal Klaipėda Convention was signed in Paris on May 8, 1924, securing extensive autonomy for the region.

Surprisingly, throughout its long history Lithuania was never a maritime nation and didn't possess its own seaport - Klapeda until 1923 was called Memel and since its foundation in 1252 belonged to the Teutonic order, Prussia and Germany. Lithuania once stretched beyond Smolensk and Kiev, but her access to the Baltic sea didn't exceed 15 km !!!

Yes, it is a little bit strange to see it, except for first Mindaugas reign years, when minor Lithuania was included to Propria Lithuania. GDL had a port Šventoji, which had another German name Heiligen Aa. Port was destroyed during Northern war.

......

This photo is fact that this city not was absolutely destroyed by English bombs, but city was demolished by soviets.

Kaliningrad/Konigsber. Kaliningrad d. (Russia)

It would be wonderful if Kaliningrad would be still managed by Germany
