Once I decided to work on a book about Baltic's adventure, I started looking for more information about him. There were lots of news reports from all over the world, as well as photographs and videos. Especially helpful were a number of interviews with the Baltica's crew done for Polish television that I had translated into English. Mr. Paweł Rola, from the Polish Institute of Meteorology and Water Management (IMGW), graciously gave me access to some incredible photographs of Baltic taken right before his rescue:
One of my favorite videos about Baltic requires no translation: the images alone capture all the emotion and drama of that day.
