St. Louis Manifest

St. Louis Manifest (@Stl_Manifest) is tweeting out the names and stories of passengers from the manifest of the St. Louis, a German ocean liner carrying 937 passengers, most of whom were Jews fleeing the Third Reich. The ship was forced to return to Europe after Cuba and the United States denied its passengers entry.

 My name is Margarete Gr√ľnthal. The US turned me away at the border in 1939.
