Voyage of the Damned


Photo of Faye Dunaway in the frame of a star of David is courtesy of "albertdiner" who published it on Flickr. 
The film  Voyage of the Damned is about a ship carrying Jewish refugees from Germany to Cuba in 1939… The government of Cuba refuses to get them. 

After I wrote this posting and BECAUSE I wrote it I watched the film.

Star of David bookplate-2
Photo of Star of David in a bookplate that belongs to Julius Friedenwald is courtesy of Lew Jaffe who posted it on his blog which is dedicated to bookplates.
The Hebrew words on top of the bookplate are from
Proverbs 12:18
[There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but ] the tongue of the wise brings healing.

Julius Friedenwald, 1866- 1941 ,was a notable Baltimore physician, Zionist, and book collector
