Searching for Survivors: The Fate of the St. Louis Passengers

In early June of 1939 the St. Louis, a passenger ship carrying 937 people – almost all of them Jews fleeing Nazi Germany – was denied entry into both Cuba and the United States. With no refuge in sight, the St. Louis had to sail back to Europe. The fate of its passengers, however, remained an unsolved mystery for over sixty years. Scott Miller, a consultant with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, will discuss his decade long search to uncover the fate of every passenger on board this famous and fateful journey.
