We have had this in our library for years, and have several out in the world that we have lent to others interested in our world's history. This is a true story, horrific proof of what society can and has done in the past to "OTHERS". A warning for the faint of heart, this is verified truth, not from social media, not from rumors or hacked emails from anyone. This book has been published in many formats, movies and documentaries. Let us not forget, lest we repeat our own history.

SPOILER ALERT. If you aren't already familiar with the story of the SS St. Louis, then stop reading here.

OK, read on at your own risk. It is well worth the time taken to read this fascinating book. The title, however, is a bit misleading. It implies that all on board died at sea or were sent to the concentration camps. They weren't. However, the story is tragic enough without the title. In 1939, some German Jews were "given the opportunity" to escape the Nazi regime, by paying exorbitant fees for passage to Cuba and leaving behind everything but a few necessities. The steamship line even cynically charged them a return ticket fare, knowing that none of them would ever want to return. The Cuban government, in the midst of a wave of anti-Semitic fervor likely spread by German agents on the island, refused to let them disembark unless the government received a multi-million dollar payment. In the US the Roosevelt State Dept. showed a shameful indifference to the refugees' plight. Britain responded similarly. The German captain of the ship, however, tried everything in his power to treat his passengers respectfully and bring them to a safe port. He was eventually able to dock in Belgium but by summer of the next year it had been overrun by the Nazis. Many of the passengers ended up in the death camps while some were able to get to safety in England.
Reading the book called to mind the current anti-refugee, anti-Muslim sentiment we see at points all over the globe. We are our brothers' keepers, we just choose to ignore it sometimes.

You think the US has immigration problems today? What about the world? How is it that nine hundred people became hostage on the St. Louis? Where were all the open borders back in the late 30’s? That’s right, they didn’t exist. As the world geared up for the coming war everyone knew Germany was getting ready to launch, instead of taking action, they all sat on their hands waiting for the storm to pass. Germany was offering Jews to get out, but at what cost? It’s amazing how many people were profiting from the persecution of the Jews. If you were lucky enough to have a small fortune or relatives overseas who could send money, you had a chance. If not, the borders of Poland, the Balkans, Holland, Denmark, France, Great Britain and yes, the US were only pipe dreams. Unemployment had ravaged the world. It wouldn’t do to bring in foreigners who might take away jobs from the locals. Actually, there was horrendous outcry for the free countries to not take in any more refugees. Even though Eleanor Roosevelt felt for the marooned, her husband had to play politics.

Joseph Goebbels was using this voyage as another political harangue against the untermenshen and Jewish peoples. Many of the passengers were told, if they returned to Germany, they would be sent back to Buchenwald-permanently!

I don’t want to rewrite the whole story here, so, if you want a good look into the geopolitical situation around the world during the late 30’s and how this passenger liner defined the world, I highly recommend this story.

I commend the captain of the ship, Gustav Schroeder. He did everything in his power to make sure his cargo was deposited out of harm’s way, but no matter how valiantly he acted, the ship still flew the swastika. It was good to know his nemesis Otto Schiendick, agent of the Abwehr, was shot and killed in 1945.

Very good book. I was appalled at how so many Nations, turned a blind eye, to what was happening, for their own political gain. USA included. Even those Countries that did accept a small portion of the Jews, from this ship, didn't treat them well, and wound up putting them in camps in their own Countries. Just horrific how Germany got so many Nations to believe the Jewish people were not worthy to live. The Captain of this ship is to be applauded, for his courage, to stand up the the Nazi's. As you follow the stories of those on board, it comes to a sad ending for many. A major motion picture was made from this story, back in the 40's. The book tells a much more realistic view, although I would have liked it to be more detailed.
