2.The ship of Dreams
In the 1900’s, more and more people wanted to
travel across the Atlantic Ocean.The White Star
Line decided to build the biggest and the best of
all. The company planned to make tree ships.
Their name is : Olympic, Titanic, Gigantic. So
then Titanic finished to built in 1912.
3. The biggest ship in the
in 1912, the Titanic is the biggest ship that was
ever built. It is 269 meters long and everyone
thinks that the ship is also very safe. The ship can
carry more than 3.000 passengers, and has many
decks, a swimming pool, a library, Turkish baths,
and excellent restaurants and bars.
Life on the Titanic was as comfortable as
life in the most expensive hotels in
Europe and America. There were many
kinds of people : rich and poor, young
and old. Some of the richest people in
the world were on the ship.
The Titanic leaves Southampton, on the south coast of
England, on April 10, 1912.
There are 2.207 people on the ship for its first trip.
First class: 322 passengers
Second class: 275 passengers
Third class: 712 passengers
Crew: 898 passengers
The different classes don’t mix on the ship. They slept, lived,
and ate on different decks, the first-class passengers are on
the higher decks, the second-class passengers in the middle
and then come the third-class passengers at the bottom of the
4. The “Unsinkable Ship” sinks in
Everyone thought that the ship was also very safe.
There were sixteen compartments. In an accidents,
big metal doors could close and then no water could
get from one compartment another. The Titanic
became the famous “Unsinkable ship”. Nobody
seemed to worry about another important fact. The
ship could carry more than 3000 passengers, but it
only had lifeboats for 1178 people.
• On Sunday, April 14
comes the third ice-
warning on this day!
Captain Smith doesn’t
show it to his officers.

Parents say goodbye to their children,

• There is only one thing that Captain Smith
can do. Just after midnight, he orders the
crew to prepare the lifeboats.
Because there are more than 2.200 people
on the ship, but the ship have only 20
lifeboats for 1.178 persons. So women and
children are the first who are going.
• In the great ship’s final minutes the lights go out.
The ship is breaking in two pieces. People are
still falling. At 2:20 A.M. the morning of April 15,
the “Queen of the Ocean” was sunk. The cold is
terrible, but much worse it is for the people in the
black water. Many are screaming for help, but
the screams are becoming quieter, as the
people in the water become weaker and
• First class: 60% survived 130 died
• Second class: 42% survived 166 died
• Third class: 25% survived 536 died
• The crew : 24% survived 685 died
Even after the accident, things were very different
for first class and third class passengers. The
survivors from first class were taken to the best
hotels in New York. But the passengers from third
class were in a new country without any money or
clothes,or any of their things.
• First class passenger Benjamin
Guggenhiem came on deck in his dinner
suit. “ We’ve dressed up in our best and
are prepared to go down like gentleman”
he said. This part was exciting to me when
5. The World Cries
• Ten thousand people were waiting when
arrived in New-York on the evening of
Thursday, April 18.Through newspapers
and radio, the eyes of the world were on
the ship and its survivors.
6. The Titanic on film
• When James Cameron was writing the
movie Titanic, he wanted to show the rich
history of the ship and it’s many true
stories. The love story between Rose and
Jack was the most important part of the
movie. If people worry about the two
young lovers, they will understand the
While Cameron was making the movie, not
everybody was so sure about its success. It took a
long time to make the movie. As it continued, the
cost went up and up.It finally cost between
185’000’000$-200’000’000$. But the world’s most
expensive movie became the biggest success. It
earned over 1’600’000’000$.
• I like this book very much, because it is very
interesting to read about this history ship. When I
saw the film, there was a sad love-story about a
poor young man and a rich young lady. But the
reality wasn’t romantic. I think the author wants to
show the different of rich and poor people. The
most of rich people survived, but the most of the
poor people and the crew died. I recommend you
read about more exciting story from this book. I
learn new words and its easy to read and I advise
my friends to read this amazing story.
