Description
On May 13, 1939, the liner St. Louis sailed from Hamburg just before World War II erupted; aboard were 937 Jewish refugees who believed they had secured visas to enter Cuba. But a power struggle in the Cuban government voided their permission, and the St. Louis began a long, wandering journey while the U.S., France, Britain, and other "sympathetic" countries wrangled over who would accept them. Only a fraction would survive the war. Here the authors of Enola Gay and Guernica vividly remember their story, introducing us to particular passengers—and heroic members of the ship's crew—through accounts from their descendants.

"An extraordinary human document and a suspense story that is hard to put down. But it is more than that. It is a modern allegory, in which the SS St. Louis becomes a symbol of the SS Planet Earth. In this larger sense the book serves a greater purpose than mere drama."—NYTimes
