The Man Condemned for Surviving The Titanic

Share

Three times when he tried to make his way to the lifeboats, he was turned away by the ship’s officers, who ordered him to return to the lower levels of the ship. They likely assumed that, as a Japanese person, he must have been traveling in third class, or “steerage.” On his third attempt, Hosono managed to slip past a guard and make his way to the lifeboats.
