Titanic-Titanic.com Newsletter Competition.
This week, we have a copy of Eva Hart's book, 'A Girl Aboard The Titanic' to give away in this week's competition, courtesy of Amberley.
The remarkable memoir of Eva Hart, a 7-year old passenger on the doomed Titanic. 'I saw that ship sink, I never closed my eyes. I saw it, I heard it, and nobody could possibly forget it. I can remember the colours, the sounds, everything. The worst thing I can remember are the screams’ ‘I was 7, I had never seen a ship before... it looked very big... everybody was very excited, we went down to the cabin and that's when my mother said to my father that she had made up her mind quite firmly that she would not go to bed in that ship, she would sit up at night... she decided that she wouldn't go to bed at night, and she didn't!’ About the Author Eva Hart was one of the most outspoken survivors concerning the Titanic's lack of sufficient lifeboats and of any salvage attempts of the Titanic after its discovery in 1985. She lived for many years in Chadwell Heath in London and died in 1996. Professor Ron Denney and Eva were friends for many years and he aided her in writing up her memories. Ron Denney lives in Sevenoaks. The Kindle Edition of "A Girl Aboard The Titanic" contains 100 black and white illustrations.
