'.. the powerful story, compellingly told, of on eof the most shameful incidents of World War II.'
On the morning of 24 February 1942, on the Black Sea near Istanbul, an explosian ripped through a decrepit cattle barge filled with Jewish refugees. On man clung fiercely to apiece of deck, fighting to survive. Nearly eight hundred others - among them, more than a hundred children - perished. It was the largest loss of civilian life at sea during World War II, yet this tragedy has been all but forgotten.
The story of the Struma, its passengers, and the events that lead to its destruction is revealed in two vivid, parallel accounts set six decades apart. One chronicles the diplomatic manoeuvres and callousness of the international community, who refused them sanctuary from the Nazis/ The other recounts a recent attempt by a team of divers to locate the Struma at the bottom of the Black Sea, an effort initiated and pursued by the grandson of two of the victims. This vivid reconstrustion of a grim exodus aboard a doomed ship illuminates a forgotten episode of World War II and pays tribute to those who keep its memories alive.
