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 937 passengers, almost all Jews fleeing Nazi Germany. This postcard advertises the St. Louis in the mid-thirties, four years before the "Voyage of the Damned". The menu displays the Nazi swastika.
