About the Talk:
 
In his book The Nazi Titanic: The Incredible Story of a Doomed Ship in World War II, Dr. Watson tells the riveting story of a German luxury liner ship – the Cap Arcona, meant to rival the English Titanic – which, after starring in a failed German propaganda movie, was repurposed as a seaborne concentration camp. When the British Royal Air Force mistakenly bombed the Cap Arcona, most of its prisoners were killed in this last major tragedy of the Holocaust and one of history’s worst maritime disasters. This webinar discusses not only the story, but Dr. Watson’s incredible process of discovering the evidence to prove it, hidden from view for over 60 years.
