Titanic Passengers | Victims of the Titanic Disaster Remembered

On the 15th of April 2015, it was exactly 103 years ago that mankind endured a great tragedy. A sadness that was felt from the poorest home in Europe to the wealthiest mansions in North America. The RMS Titanic, jewel of the White Star line, sank on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. We honour the memory of the 1517 victims that lost their lives that fateful evening.

I had the privilege of meeting one of the Titanic survivors back in the late 1980s. It really was awesome.

anonymous on June 10, 2012:

So sad, very thoughtfully done, thanx.

Kristen from Wisconsin on June 08, 2012:

Its an amazing story that the survivors were able to share with the world. Your article is interesting, thank you.

swatisingh lm on June 01, 2012:

you can't survuive in those situations..

JoleneBelmain on May 31, 2012:

Oh... did I mention.....

~BLESSED~

JoleneBelmain on May 31, 2012:

Amazing how one thing can affect so many lives... RIP families of the Titanic. Hard to believe it's been 100 years.

Miha Gasper from Ljubljana, Slovenia, EU on May 29, 2012:

So many astonishing stories from one single ship...

Amazing lens, thumbs up!

Tolovaj Publishing House from Ljubljana on May 27, 2012:

Titanic was not a tragedy only to passengers and their relatives, it is also a warning to human irresponsibility. You made great lens!

Tony Payne from Southampton, UK on May 25, 2012:

This was a truly tragic event. We live in Southampton, and most of the crew came from the city, joining before she sailed as there was a general strike and high unemployment. Off all those who perished, over 500 were from Southampton.

anaisfraiche on May 25, 2012:

Thank you for sharing this lens. I can't bear to think about children, infants especially who survived this tragedy but became orphans - parents and siblings all perished.

Spiderlily321 on May 20, 2012:

Very interesting lens. These were some very sad events. :( You did a great job in writing this. Thanks for sharing

anonymous on May 18, 2012:

Never know about the sad truth behind the great movie :( Thanks for sharing this with us and I'm adding this history to my new lens: http://www.squidoo.com/squidoo-lens-interactions

soaringsis on May 18, 2012:

Always in my thoughts

floppypoppygift1 on May 18, 2012:

Amazing lens, lots of info, very sad :(

tomthiessen lm on May 12, 2012:

Rebuilding the Titanic just to experience it? I dunno. That'd be like smashing another plane into a skyscraper to recreate 9/11.

ogrote (author) on May 12, 2012:

@cheapmicrowave lm: Hi, Thanks for your comment.

My understanding is that it is going to be a complete replica, built by a Chinese firm.

cheapmicrowave lm on May 12, 2012:

This is a truly beautiful lens. I heard about the titanic 2 being built from a friend but didn't believe him, I think its great that work is going ahead. Will it be an exact replica?

trendydad on May 10, 2012:

I love this lens--great job

GentlemenGogoVEVO on May 08, 2012:

anonymous on May 07, 2012:

Let's remember them. Great page.

jolou on May 03, 2012:

Such tragic stories. In some cases entire families were lost.

Susanna Duffy from Melbourne Australia on May 03, 2012:

Such sad stories. 100 years seems like nothing when you read the background and see the photos of those poor souls who died on the Titanic

Lee Hansen from Vermont on April 27, 2012:

The Titanic story is so tragic - and more recent shipwrecks have convinced me I will never take a cruise!

JoyfulPamela2 from Pennsylvania, USA on April 18, 2012:

My daughter just performed in the musical "Titanic" several times over the past week, so it has brought to mind all the interesting stories and people.

anonymous on April 16, 2012:

Titanic has become a Ship that will Live Forever and will Remain a Deep Rooted part of History!!
