SS St. Louis, 1939, Voyage of The Damned. Can you help?
In 1939 the United States denied entrance to a shipful of European Jews.
The SS St. Louis sailed >from Hamburg to Cuba with 937 Jews. When
admission was refused, the ship idled off the United States coast, in an
effort to find a haven. Many of the stateless refugees were sent back to
Germany, and ultimately perished in the Holocaust.
Anyone with information on the fate of any of the passengers on the St.
Louis should contact:
