In May 1939 more than 900 Jews fled Hitler's Germany on a luxury liner, the SS St Louis; they hoped to reach Cuba then travel to the US, but were turned away from both.
The increasingly desperate passengers were forced to sail back to Europe, where more than 250 of them were later killed by the Nazis.
