Thanks to American popular culture we generally think of the English, Irish, and maybe the Americans aboard the Titanic. But who else was travelling on Titanic and what were their stories? Join authors Lilly Setterdahl and Leila Salloum Elias as they share the stories of the large Swedish and Syrian contingents en route to America when their lives were forever changed.
Leila Salloum Elias authored The Dream and Then the Nightmare: The Syrians Who Boarded the Titanic. Lilly Setterdahltter is the author of Not my Time to Die: Titanic and the Swedes on Board.
Join us in 2022 for the Molly Brown House Museum’s A Deeper Dive! A Deeper Dive is our speaker series to accompany the Titanic exhibit, shown throughout the house from April-September. In this series hosted by museum staff and Titanic experts (and others!) we’ll discuss the stories within the larger story of the Titanic disaster. Registration required to attend.
