    I saw the thread title this morning and knew I had to read it. So terribly sad - but I'm glad his father survived ... some comfort.

    There are so many stories out there - thank you for bringing this one to our attention.

    What a senseless, tragic story.

    This is just an example of the kinds of horror suffered by many during the Holocaust. The fact that the sinking was a result of Stalin's fiat just makes it worse. This statement in the story says it all.
