The Nazi Titanic: The Incredible Untold Story of a Doomed Ship in World War II with Dr. Robert P. Watson in conversation with Dr. Miriam Klein Kassenoff
Built in 1927, the German ocean liner SS Cap Arcona was the greatest ship since the RMS Titanic and one of the most celebrated luxury liners in the world. When the Nazis seized control in Germany, she was stripped down for use as a floating barracks and troop transport. Although the British government sealed many documents pertaining to the ship's sinking, Dr. Watson has unearthed forgotten records, conducted many interviews, and used over 100 sources, including diaries and oral histories, to expose this story. As a result, The Nazi Titanic is a riveting and astonishing account of an enigmatic ship that played a devastating role in World War II and the Holocaust.
