Speaker Eva Wiener, youngest passenger aboard the doomed German ship St Louis, describes the ordeal of the 900 Jewish passengers fleeing Nazi Germany in 1939. Refused entry to Cuba and the US, they were forced to return to Europe where many perished.
This event was memorialized in the book and film "Voyage of the Damned". It is part of the CBI Holocaust Remembrance program.
