The four men are survivors of the tragic 1939 voyage of the SS St. Louis. After trying to dock in several countries, including the U.S., the ship was forced to return to Europe.
Many passengers subsequently found themselves under Nazi rule, and many died as a result. The majority of the passengers that were granted refuge in Great Britain survived the ordeal. Shawna Forsberg is Director of Marketing for the Durham.
