I learn from Boie-Oesterle's "Die deutsche Handelsschiffahrt bei Kriegsausbruch 1939" that POTSDAM, having been made aware of the imminent attack against Poland, actually left Southamptoon 24 August 1939 (where she had made a stop en route to East Asia) to return to Bremerhaven on 27 August. It seems rather curious for a ship carrying Jewish refugees to make a stop in England...
