(Not So) Fun Fact: When America Turned Away Future Holocaust Victims

Fun facts about world War 2

The MS St. Louis was a ship most famous for sailing 908 Jewish refugees out of Germany in 1939. The ship sailed to the Americas where refugees were refused both in Cuba, and in the United States. The ship was forced to sail back to Europe where the passengers were taken by various countries. However over 250 of these passengers did not survive the end of World War II as Germans had invaded the countries they had been accepted to.
