Continued: Three Queens Liverpool 2015: Lusitania remembered in city

Continued from Above:

The Sinking of Lusitania

Lusitania: life, loss, legacy

The largest section of the exhibition will look at the Lusitania’s final voyage from New York in May 1915, her sinking by U-boat 20, and the aftermath of the tragedy, with anti-German riots spreading from Liverpool to other parts of the country.

Key artefacts, including a rare lifejacket, deckchair and cushion, letters written by survivors, and a baby shoe and medal presented to Able Seaman Joseph Parry for saving lives, will all be on show, alongside recordings of interviews with survivors, and a huge ship’s model of the RMS Berengaria, handed over after the war by Germany as part of reparations.

The exhibition also includes a touch screen search facility which will hold biographies of everyone on board the ship on that last sailing.

Ellie adds: “If people have more information about individuals, they can add it in. This is a long-term development.”

Lusitania: life, loss, legacy opens at the Maritime Museum on March 27.

Three Queens, One Magnificent City runs from May 23-26
