It is not only the travel of the Wilhelm Gustloff [see here for more] to Lisbon an Madeira. The relevant are the images of this country in 1938. War was close. In 1945 the ship was sunk by a Soviet torpedo with more than 10 000 refugees aboard [see here and here]. It was the greatest disaster in Maritime History. Many try to hide the fact.Titanic's story with 1 500 casualties is more romantic for the general audience and better for the political correctness.
