It has been made into a movie and there are countless books about that fateful day in April 1912.
So it was with much sadness, even though it doesn't directly effect me, that I read in the newspaper that over the weekend the last known survivor had died.
She was 97 years old. She had been on the boat at the age of 2 months as her family emigrated to Kansas in the United States. She lost her father but her mother and brother survived.
It is still a fascinating story that will be read with interest for many generations to come.
