Re: Seeking 1940 ship name and manifest Lisbon to Mozambique Portugal Lourenço Marques #general
You probably look for the spanish ship Salvador, sailing under
the flag of Uruguay. The passenger ship departed from Istanbul, Turkey on December 11th, 1940, carrying 327 passengers -Bulgarian Jewish refugees.
She had a capacity for only 40 passengers. The ship foundered in the
Sea of Marmara on December 12th, 1940. with the loss of 204 passengers. Read more at :
I´d also like to mention that Lorenzo Marques was the capital of the
Overseas Province of Mozambique before it became independent from
Portugal in 1975. Since then the capital was renamed Maputo.
