2: May 13th 1939 937 people bordered the SS. ship and it started heading out. | May 8th 40,000 Cubans in Havana against Jewish immigration

3: MAy 15 He ship arrives in Cherbourg France and departs the same day | June 10-13 Great Britain agrees to admit 287 passengers. | June 17th The Journey ends at Antwerp Belgium

4: Dear mother, I wanted to tell you that I'm on the ship and everyone on it are excited. we just got to Cuba and then our mood changed. They wont let us in so now we are stuck in the middle of the ocean with no where to go. the captain decided to have a passenger committee and i was asked to be on it.Now everyone is saying different places to go to. some are saying Africa,France, and Mexico. I think our best bet is to go to great Britain. If we don't choose soon then he will for us. Well now it looks like we are going to Belgium. I will write back again when i know whats going on. Sincerely Love Abigail

6: Its your daughter Abigail my thoughts about this so far are not so good, they forced us on a ship with 937 otherJewish people.The voyage was expensive.I could only afford with the lower class. most of the people were forced out of their jobs. The conditions on the ship are terrible. Ill write to you soon. Sincerely Your Daughter

7: Dear Mother Everything has been different in Germany ever since Hiller became Chancellor. THe other night Hitler sent troops to destroy Jewish stores and business. The next day Nazi troops came to my door and took me to a harbor to get registered. I was told to get on the S.S ship. I had my bag and a few items. Now I'm on my way to America love you and Talk to you soon.

8: 84 of the people were sent to Belgium. 254 died, and 86 were sent to France.
