'The story of the Struma, its passengers, and the events that led to its destruction is revealed in two vivid, parallel accounts set six decades apart.  One chronicles the diplomatic manoeuvres and callousness of the international community, who refused them sanctuary from the Nazis.  The other recounts a recent attempt by a team of divers to locate the Struma at the bottom of the Black Sea, an effort initiated and pursued by the grandson of two of the victims.  This vivid reconstruction of a grim exodus aboard a doomed ship illuminates a forgotten episode of World War II and pays tribute to those who keep its memory alive.'
