Wow. So much to be read between the lines of their parents' story. Wow.

The older boy

Michel is holding what looks to be a glass paperweight, probably of the millifiori type.

The brothers

Wow, that's quite a story -- thanks for posting the link. Those poor boys, caught up in family drama and then this disaster. I wonder how hard it was for them to go back to Europe on another ocean liner...

Imagining what they've seen

I am deeply touched by this photo. The way the youngest one is holding his toy-cat makes the photo for me. What they had been through. Thanks for posting it.


The little stuffed cat is amazing--the detail shows you every bit of fuzz and hair! But what is the bigger boy holding? At first I thought it was just a ball, or maybe a snow globe. Gotta love that curly hair!

Lolo and Momon

Interesting article on the brothers at Encyclopedia Titanica.

Titanic Tots

So cute! They look like Cabbage Patch dolls!
