Unterseeboot 2 or U-2 was a German Type IIA U-boat of the Kriegsmarine. Her keel was laid down February 11, 1935 by Deutsche Werke of Kiel, and she was commissioned July 25, 1935 with Oberleutnant zur See Hermann Michahelles in command.
She had several commanders over her long career. Michahelles was relieved on September 30, 1936, by Kapitänleutant Heinrich Liebe. Liebe turned command over on January 31, 1938, to Oblt. Herbert Schultze. On March 16, 1939, Kptlt. Helmut Rosenbaum assumed command and on July 7, 1940, Oblt. Hans Heidtmann joined Rosenbaum as deputy commander. On August 6, 1940, Georg von Wilamowitz-Moellendorf relieved Rosenbaum and Heidtmann and commanded until October of 1941 when Karl Kölzer took over. On May 16, 1942, Oblt. Werner Schwaff relieved Kölzer, and on November 20, 1942, was relieved by Oblt. Helmut Herglotz. On December 12, 1943, Oblt. Wolfgang Schwarzkopf took over and commanded the boat until she was lost.
