Titanic Deliverance
April 02, 2023

A Benton Harbor family of four survived the sinking of the Titanic in April 1912. Their amazing story will be presented by Sylvia Fagal, a niece who knew the survivors. Using vintage photographs and art illustrations, she will recount the story of her uncle’s family who spent 12 years in India, but needed to return because their young son was ill, a priority for them, since their first baby son died in India.

They crated their belongings, got them loaded on ship in Madras, but the husband and father was suddenly so obviously sick that the authorities would not allow him to board. The family had to decide on the dock that the mother, 12-yr-old daughter, and the two little children would go without him. They reached England and soon sailed on the Titanic. When the ship hit the iceberg, the family became separated and the mother faced hours of agony not knowing where her 12-year old daughter was.

And, as one might imagine, there is a lot of drama as the story unfolds!

Don't miss this illustrated recounting of the event, 111 years after it happened, by the niece of the only family of four to survive the sinking of the Titanic.
