Relive history through these amazing moment-by-moment accounts of the famous shipwreck and what ten young people did to survive. Seventeen-year-old Jack Thayer looks over the side of the sinking Titanic and stares into the frigid sea. He knows he has to jump, but can he? Fifteen-year-old Edith Brown and her mother beg her father to join them in Lifeboat 14. Why won't he? Eleven-year-old Billy Carter kneels down on the slanting deck of the ship and hugs his beloved Airedale. But how can he save himself and his dog, too? These young people and seven more from many walks of life tell of the terrifying decisions they faced on the night of April 14, 1912, when the unthinkable occurred and the "unsinkable" ship began to go down.

IN the early morning hours of April 15, 1912, the icy waters of the North Atlantic reverberated with the desperate screams of more than 1,500 men, women, and children—passengers of the once majestic liner Titanic. Then, as the ship sank to the ocean floor and the passengers slowly died from hypothermia, an even more awful silence settled over the sea. The sights and sounds of that night would haunt each of the vessel’s 705 survivors for the rest of their days. Although we think we know the story of Titanic—the famously luxurious and supposedly unsinkable ship that struck an iceberg on its maiden voyage from Britain to America—very little has been written about what happened to the survivors after the tragedy. How did they cope in the aftermath of this horrific event? How did they come to remember that night, a disaster that has been likened to the destruction of a small town? Drawing on a wealth of previously unpublished letters, memoirs, and diaries as well as interviews with survivors’ family members, award-winning journalist and author Andrew Wilson reveals how some used their experience to propel themselves on to fame, while others were so racked with guilt they spent the rest of their lives under the Titanic’s shadow. Some reputations were destroyed, and some survivors were so psychologically damaged that they took their own lives in the years that followed. Andrew Wilson brings to life the colorful voices of many of those who lived to tell the tale, from famous survivors like Madeleine Astor (who became a bride, a widow, an heiress, and a mother all within a year), Lady Duff Gordon, and White Star Line chairman J. Bruce Ismay, to lesser known second- and third-class passengers such as the Navratil brothers—who were traveling under assumed names because they were being abducted by their father. Today, one hundred years after that fateful voyage, Shadow of the Titanic adds an important new dimension to our understanding of this enduringly fascinating story.

This is the graphic, first-hand story of the maiden voyage and disastrous sinking of the RMS Titanic, told by the survivors themselves. The story of the sinking of the great liner has been told countless times since that fateful night on April 14, 1912, by historians, novelists, and film producers alike, but no account is as graphic or revealing as those from the people who were actually there. Through survivors’ tales and contemporary newspaper reports from both sides of the Atlantic, here are eyewitness accounts full of details that range from poignant to humorous, stage by stage from the liner’s glorious launch in Belfast to the somber sea burial services of those who perished on her first and only voyage. In this book, the voices of the survivors share their own stories, as well as the official records, press reports, and investigations into what went wrong that night.

For a very long time, I didn’t talk about what happened to me during the war... In 1945, in a now-famous piece of archival footage, four-year-old Michael Bornstein was filmed by Soviet soldiers as he was carried out of Auschwitz in his grandmother’s arms. Here is the unforgettable story of how a father’s courageous wit, a mother’s fierce love, and one perfectly timed illness saved his life, and how others in his family dodged death at the hands of the Nazis time and again. Working from his own recollections as well as interviews with relatives and survivors, Michael relates his shocking, heartbreaking and ultimately inspirational story. Survivors Club is an extraordinary memoir of one of the youngest prisoners liberated from Auschwitz—and of the mystery and miracle of his family’s survival. 'Michael, I have to go, my darling,’ Mamishu told me as tears streamed down her face. ‘I promise, I will see you again someday. We’ll be free and I will find you. But right now, I have no choice. I have to leave you for a little while.' After the war, Michael Bornstein emigrated to New York City, where he worked in pharmaceutical research for over forty years. Now retired, Michael visits schools, talking about his experiences in the Holocaust. Debbie Bornstein Holinstat is Michael Bornstein’s third of four children. A producer for NBC and MSNBC News, she lives in New Jersey. ‘Here is the unforgettable story of how a father’s courageous wit, a mother’s fierce love and a perfectly timed illness saved his life, and how others in his family dodged death at the hands of the Nazis. Working from his own recollections as well as interviews with relatives and survivors, Bornstein relates his shocking, heartbreaking and ultimately inspirational story.’ Australian Jewish News ‘A powerful first person narrative for young adult readers: an important, confronting, absorbing and well-written story. Highly recommended.’ Reading Time ‘As gripping as any holocaust related fiction for young readers, this true story with appropriate information on how the facts were verified is highly recommended for readers aged 10 or more.’ Magpies
