Rückgabe von Helgoland
Bis 1952 blieb Helgoland militärisches Sperrgebiet und Bombenabwurfplatz für die britische Luftwaffe. Während dieser Zeit nannten britische Soldaten die Insel zynisch Hell-go-land (das Land, das zur Hölle geht).
Die Briten gaben am 1. März 1952 Helgoland wieder an die Bundesrepublik Deutschland zurück. Die Bevölkerung erhielt die Erlaubnis, auf ihre Insel zurückzukehren. Bis heute ist der 1. März auf Helgoland ein Feiertag.
