The Nazi Titanic: The Incredible Untold Story of a Doomed Ship in World War II

0

Hitler loved big ships to project Nazi Germany power and success. The Cap Arcona filled that role. It was a cruise ship that attracted Hollywood stars such as Clark Gable and served as the set for a Nazi movie based upon the story of the Titanic. However, the Nazi story line was based upon greedy British ship owners and a reckless British captain driving the people into an ice berg and their deaths. Unfortunately, it never showed in Germany because Goebbels realized the secret theme the director set into the film after Goebbels had the director killed. In the closing days of the war, the ship was a final chapter of the Holocaust as thousands of concentration camp survivors were boarded on the ship for a a number of Nazi plans. Unfortunately, 7,000 concentration camp survivors were killed by friendly British airplanes who thought they were German soldiers fleeing to Norway to regroup. Listen to these stories with author Robert P. Watson. It’s a half-hour you’ll always remember.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
