This is the authoritative work on the Titanic Disaster. The author Walter Lord spent years searching for and interviewing Titanic survivors. Still his work was not complete. Some people were embarrassed that they had survived when so many others had died. So they wrote memoirs but hid their memories which in some cases are still just coming out today. RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early morning of 15 April 1912, after colliding with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. A Night to Remember was made into a movie by the same name in 1958. In 1997, when James Cameron came out with his blockbuster movie Titanic, first he bought the book and the movie rights to A Night to Remember. For example, a Japanese man survived but he did not tell anybody about this. He was a lower class passenger. The way he survived was when the lifeboats were being lowered he jumped through one of the windows onto a lifeboat that was already filled with passengers. The other passengers did not push him out. When they got to the water, he helped them row away. Jumping onto the boat as it was being lowered his was considered a dishonorable thing to do in Japan, so when he got back to Tokyo, he did not tell anybody about this. Only after he died years later did his family reveal this.
