The SS. St. Louis was a transatlantic liner that was sailed from Hamburg, Germany to Havana, Cuba. There were 938 passengers onboard the St. Louis, only one was not a Jewish refugee escaping from the Third Reich. When the St. Louis, had reached Cuba, it was told that Cuba's current political situation at the time was too dangerous to take all the immigrations. After an unsuccessful immigration for most of the passengers onboard, the ship was forced to sail back to Europe and returned on June 6.
