Thanks to American popular culture we generally think of the English, Irish, and a few wealthy Americans aboard the Titanic. But who else was travelling and what are their stories? Join authors Lilly Setterdahl and Leila Salloum Elias as they reflect on the large Swedish and Syrian contingents who were 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 Setterdahl authored “Not my Time to Die: Titanic and the Swedes on Board.”

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.
