MS St Louis

The Voyage of the St. Louis

The MS St. Louis sailed from Hamburg en route to Cuba on May 13, 1939, carrying more than nine hundred Jewish refugees fleeing the Third Reich. Their hopes of leaving Europe were dashed when Cuba and then the United States turned away most of the passengers, sending them back to western Europe.
