On April 10, 1912, 2 first-, 1 second- and 28 third-class Norwegian passengers boarded the Titanic. Only 10 of them would survive the sinking five days later. This book is about those 31 individuals. In many ways the various elements of their story belong just as much to the other non-English speaking passengers on board.
This book begins with the vast emigration to America with a detailed account of each passenger’s background and ends with what happened to the survivors and the many affected families. The book also explores the “mystery ship” Samson and asks would Officer Henrik Naess really have fabricated the sealing barque’s role on that cold April night? Good resource for those seeking a Norwegian connection to the Titanic.
