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.
