The feature titled “The Day I Shell Not Forget for the Rest of My Life” is the story of Carpathia, the ship best known for heading into the precarious rescue of people from the Titanic on April 15, 1912.
It is also the story of all of these people: officers, sailors and passengers, participants of this event that forever marked their lives.
The feature follows the chronology of Carpathia’s sailing history, focusing on the tragic and heroic moments that took the two ships into eternity.
An authentic testimony of these events is brought to us through the diary of Marija Aliuš Bartowski, a teacher from Osijek who wrote this extraordinary biography after finding herself on the Carpathia traveling from New York to Rijeka that day.
Her diary entries take us back into the midst of the dramatic scenes of the shipwreck rescue, but also portray a charismatic woman who left behind an extremely private and historical document.
