3rd class during sinking


i know that 3rd class passengers were not trapped in the way shown in the films but were they stopped from getting to the boats or not told to go to them.

Not really sure aloptia432,The surviving officer (can't remember which one) in an interviewd stated that does not matter if the women was first or third class,every women was equal and no third class women was held back. I don't know if he is telling the turth or not but there is no evidence if it did happen or not.

Re: 3rd class during sinking


I could be wrong, but I've heard it took 2nd Officer Lightoller two weeks to find his way from one end of Titanic to the other. The passengers, of course, didn't have two weeks to find their way around. It's possible some Third Class passengers simply got lost while trying to get to the lifeboats. I've also heard that the White Star Line tried to blame the large number of Third Class deaths on passengers who couldn't speak English.
