Titanic Remembered

The Queens County Museum is exhibiting “Titanic Remembered”. This exhibit opened to the public on the 100th anniversary of her sinking, April 15.  Liverpool had a small connection with the sinking of the Titanic. Two little Syrian boys, the Yarred brothers, survived and were brought here to Liverpool to stay with the Garratt family until they could be reunited with their family in Florida.  On display are three hankies, authentic Titanic artifacts. Three hankies were scooped out of the water by a crewmember of the MacKay Bennett when she was sent out to the scene to retrieve the bodies. He brought the hankies home to his wife who washed and pressed them, then placed them in the family bible. 
Come on in and see them and get the rest of the story . The exhibit will be in place from April 15yh  to the end of September. There is no admission fee to come in and view it.
