Gansk, Poland (AHN) - World leaders from at least 20 nations gathered at Gansk, Poland Tuesday to remember the beginning of World War II there, at least 6 million Poles lost there lives in that conflict.

War broke out 70 years ago, on Sept. 1, 1939, when the German battleship Schleswig-Holstein opened fire on the fort at Gansk. At the same time, Poland was invaded by German forces from east, west and south.

Those attacks brought Britain and France into the war with both nations declaring war against Germany two days later.

WW II raged on until Sept. 2, 1945 when Japan, Germany's ally, signed an unconditional declaration of surrender.
