In this fascinating biography Paul Arnott reveals the full story of a ship that changed so many lives.   Built by German-Jewish shipbuilders in 1930 and requisitioned by the Nazis for propoganda‘cruises’, it was used to transport Norwegian Jews to Auschwitz, before being captured by the British and renamed. But it’s a single voyage from the Caribbean in June 1948 bringing the first-wave of black migrants that led to its name being ingrained in British history, a symbolic beginning to our multicultural nation, synonymous with injustices and cover-ups.
