Voyage of the Damned

Speaker: Phil Goldfarb
More about Phil here...

The Voyage of the Damned is a behind the scenes account of the S.S. St Louis which became the “Voyage of the Damned” in May, 1939. A compelling and interesting story that contains xenophobia, anti-Semitism, racism, hatred, money and politics. Questions answered will include: Why were people leaving their home country of Germany? What was the atmosphere like on the ship itself? Why were they turned away from Cuba when they had valid visas? Why did the U.S. not take them? What did the Captain do? What happened to the passengers?

Meetings start at 6:00 pm in the Chesapeake Room of the Oklahoma History Center,
800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive, Oklahoma City (across from the State Capitol).
