SAVE THE TITANIC!
They called it ‘the ship that would never sink’, but on 15th April, 1912, the British passenger liner Titanic collided with an iceberg and sank in the North Atlantic Ocean. Unfortunately, there weren’t enough lifeboats for everybody. Of the 2,224 people aboard, more than 1,500 died. Another ship, the Carpathia, sailed through dangerous ice fields and rescued 705 survivors from the Titanic. Charlotte, a young passenger on the Carpathia, tells the story of that rescue.
