These pages are based on a essay written in 1999 as a preparation for my English-exams at the "Matura" (the final examination in high schools in Austria). The present version is pretty much the same as the one written in 1999.

Originally, I intended to expand this essay about the R.M.S. Titanic, especially by adding several photographs, drawings and other illustrations. However, it turned out to be quite difficult to find suitable material for which I am granted the right to publish it on my homepage. As long as I do not have enough spare time (and enough patience) to search the web for useful files, one has to cope with the "Text-Only"-version.
