This day in Jewish history / An esteemed Jewish couple goes down with the Titanic
It's not known how many Jews died on the famous passenger liner, but among the most well-known were Isidor and Ida Straus.
April 15, 1912, was the day that the S.S. Titanic sank in the north Atlantic, after hitting an iceberg. Of the 2,225 passengers and crew on board the “unsinkable” British passenger liner on its maiden voyage, only 713 survived.
