Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: The inability of the Jews on the transatlantic liner St. Louis to disembark in Havana, the United States, or any of the chosen destinations was a great propaganda victory for the Nazis. On the 1939 voyage were 938 passengers, almost all Jews fleeing Nazi Germany. This postcard is of the St. Louis in the early thirties. Menu from the St. Louis in 1935 displaying the Nazi Swastika.
