Synopsis

Survivors A True-life Titanic Story by Elisabeth Navratil

Two small boys, Michel and Edmond Navratil, are among the crowds waiting to board the ill-fated Titanic on her maiden voyage. The noise from the ship's sirens, the vast size of the awesome liner and the anxiety of their first sea voyage has created an air of excitement and fear on the bustling quays. But the boys' father, Michel Navratil Snr. has another reason to be anxious - he has snatched the two children from their mother and they are travelling under false names to begin a new life in America. When the ship sinks father and children are separated. The boys survive the tragedy but no-one knows who they are. What will happen to the boys with no name? Will they ever be reunited with their mother? Elizabeth Navratil tells the true story of her grandfather, father and uncle and their voyage aboard the Titanic. The events surrounding the voyage and the fateful night of 14th April 1912 are real, with the exception of some small details.
