Titanic Remembered

The Unsinkable Ship and Halifax

The sinking of the ocean-liner Titanic in April of 1912 captured the attention of the world; as the nearest large port to the site of the disaster, Halifax became the focus of the world’s grief.

Today, visitors from around the world go to Halifax to see the many unique artefacts of the sinking in the collection of the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, a permanent exhibit that recounts the story of Titanic and the city’s role in the disaster. This book, newly updated, describes the extensive search that followed the sinking and examines how people came to terms with the impact of the sinking.

Titanic Remembered offers a unique perspective on the Titanic saga, serving as a valuable illustration of the disaster’s tragic aftermath.
