Imagine you are a diver sent down to inspect bridge foundations, and you discover, lodged against the foundation what appears to be a wreck.  That’s exactly what happened in 2002 below Queen’s Bridge in Rotterdam.

She was raised and investigation determined her to be Amicitia, launched in Zaandam  as Henja in 1941.   She was then sold to owners in Arnhem, renamed Amicitia, confiscated by the Germans, and sunk in Rotterdam in 1943.

She’s now being restored by the Foundation for the Preservation of the Amicitia.

Thanks to Fred Trooster.
