On 17 September 1940, a passenger ship called the City of Benares was sunk by a German U-boat while crossing the Atlantic. Some among its 406 passengers and crew, were being evacuated to Canada and the US, in order to escape the Nazi Blitz. There were 100 children on board.|
Only 19 of those children survived.
