A Survivor’s Story
by Eva Hart
Eva Hart was one of the most outspoken of Titanic’s survivors being critical of the lack of lifeboats and of any salvage attempts of the ship after its discovery in 1985. Eva lived for many years in Chadwell Heath and died in 1996.
This is the amazing story of how Eva Hart survived the sinking of the Titanic, the disaster that claimed the life of her father. The events of a few hours during her childhood had a huge impact on Eva. Her vivid memories of being bundled into a lifeboat and of watching the unsinkable ship slip beneath the surface remained with her for the rest of her life, although it was nearly forty years before she could talk openly about the tragedy.
This is the only memoir about the disaster written by a child survivor. Eva Hart said, “I saw that ship sink, I never closed my eyes. I saw it, I heard it, and nobody could possibly forget it. I can remember the colours, the sounds, everything. The worst thing I can remember are the screams”.
The book includes family photographs and images of the Titanic, some which are published for the first time.
I would highly recommend this book to our readers.
