Title Doomsday on the Black Sea
Genre fictional account of a real event
Description Solly Border, the author of Doomsday on the Black Sea, was with his aunt Anna when she learned how the sinking of Struma, a doomed ship hadtaken her three children to the bottom of the unforgiving sea. Although he was a child at that time, he never forgot the grief experienced by Anna and others struck by the tragedy.
When Border himself lost his only son, his memory of the sinking of the Struma became an obsession, and he determined to memorialized it in a novel.
Because there were no witnesses to the event, Border fictionalized characters and scenes as he imagined they had occurred during the ordeal. The 768 passengers were forced to stay on board for 71 days in the most inhumane condition before the debacle occurred. Only one person survived.
