The Sinking of the Patria by Judith Weinshall Liberman

THE SINKING OF THE PATRIA tells the story of a lonely girl who finds an unexpected soulmate in her caretaker, a survivor of the Patria disaster. The story takes place in Haifa, Palestine (now Israel), during World War II, shortly after the SS Patria, a ship full of Jewish refugees from Nazi-occupied Europe, sank in Haifa Port. While illuminating the human toll exacted by the sinking of the Patria, this book tells a heartwarming story about the bonding of a lonely, empathetic young girl with one of the Patria’s survivors.
