After the news of the Titanic tragedy reached the
world, the challenge was how to inform the relatives
whether their loved ones were among the dead or the
living. At the office of the White Star Line in
Liverpool, England, a huge board was set up. On one
side was a cardboard sign which read: "Known to be
Saved," and on the other, was a cardboard sign with
the words: "Known To Be Lost". Hundreds of
people gathered to intently watch the updates. When
a messenger brought new information, those waiting
held their breath, wondering on which side the
messenger would write and what name would be
added to the growing list.
Although the travelers on the Titanic were first
class, second class, or third class passengers, after the
ship went down, there were only two categories: the
saved and the lost.
