A child nibbles on a piece of fruit and sits on luggage as the Spanish steamship SS Navemar reaches safety after a perilous flight from Europe, New York, September, 1941. The Navemar was designed to hold 28 passengers but held over 1,100 refugees fleeing from Nazi-occupied Europe through Spain and Portugal. Passengers paid as much as $1,750 ($23,000 in 2005 dollars) for a ticket on what became nicknamed the 'SS Nevermore' because of the outbreak of typhus and generally unsanitary conditions during the slow journey. The Navemar was built in 1921 at Newcastle-upon-Tyne and was sunk by the Italian submarine R. Smg. Barbarigo on January 23, 1942. (Photo by FPG/Getty Images)
