Emden was almost totally demolished during an Royal Air Force bombing raid on September 6th, 1944, (it is believed, the Allies targetted the civilian population, as reprisal against the Luftwaffe raid on Coventry, England). The RAF raid destroyed more than 80% of the buildings, including most historic properties; the shipyard remained untouched.
