TORPEDOED The True Story of the World War II Sinking of "The Children's Ship"

by | Read by Marisa Calin

Children Ages 10+ • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Marisa Calin chronicles the lives of children, those who survived and those who perished, in the tragic sinking of the SS CITY OF BENARES, or "The Children's Ship." The ship was intended to save British children from the German air raids of WWII by transporting them to Canada, but it was torpedoed by a German U-boat while making the journey. As the surviving children cling to the wet and slippery rescue boats in the cold Atlantic, Calin perfectly portrays the fear and determination of each passenger. Listeners will be saddened by the history of this disastrous shipwreck but glad to know that the stories of the passengers and crew will be remembered.
