On April 10th, 1912, the legendary cruise ship known as the Titanic, thought to be unsinkable, sails to New York from Southampton, England. As everyone knows, this inaugural journey was also the ship’s very last. You probably have seen the famous 1997 James Cameron movie, but it’s less likely that you will have seen these chill-inducing photos.

During the night from April 14th to April 15th, the captain and his crew are surprised by a collision. The Titanic had just hit an iceberg. The crew is particularly surprised because the messages sent by other ships to warn the Titanic of the imminent danger never reached the captain’s cabin. The ship was built to resist to only four flooded compartments, and six compartments were damaged in the fateful crash.

Margaret Brown, nicknamed Molly, is a first-class passenger on the Titanic. Of modest origins and then brought into wealth, her outspokenness stood out. In the film, she becomes Jack Dawson’s protector.

Meanwhile, lifeboats take the survivors away from the heart-wrenching spectacle. It is the very last lifeboat that has left the shipwreck, and the passengers can see the ship sinking before their very eyes.

At 2:20am, the Titanic had fully sunk, broken in two pieces. It’s around two hours later that the Carpathia, a ship that was in the surroundings, comes to save passengers.

Some passengers were luckier than others. Charlotte Collyer and her daughter Marjorie miraculously survived the disaster. Stuart Collett, another survivor. In total, 1,517 people died in the tragedy

The Titanic’s orphans, after the terrible accident led to the death of their father. Some survivors of the shipwreck were welcomed in Millbay Docks, Plymouth, on England’s coast. They seem exhausted and the tragedy will leave an indelible mark on their faces.
