Whatever Happened to the Ship that Saved the Mir Yeshiva?

by Rabbi Yair Hoffman

The saving of thousands of people who received Sugihara visas was miraculous.  The ship that transported the refugees from Russia to Japan was the Amakusa Maru.

The Titanic sank in 1912, when it hit an iceberg.  The Amakusa Maru sank thirty years later – in 1942. The Titanic was located in 1985.  The Amakusa Maru was located in 2016 – also 30 years later.
