This novella takes place on the tragic voyage of the SS St. Louis, a ship the Nazis allowed to sail out of Germany carrying the souls of 926 Jewish passengers hoping to be allowed to live. The vessel sailed out of the port of Hamburg Germany in 1939, with a very high price demanded for passage. However, when the ship set sail on it's way to Havana Cuba, the travelers had no idea what was in store.
A story of love, of betrayal, and jealousy - of the will to live and the sadistic hatred of a madman and those who followed him. But also a tribute to the human spirit which is sometimes remarkably filled with hope, generosity and light.
