FIN

This was the numer of people who were traveling on the boat.

≃2,240

  • ≈ 1,316 passengers
  • ≈ 889 members of crew

Around 1500 people were kiled that night.

  • 76% of the crew members died
  • 75% of the Third class died
  • 25% of the women died
  • 82% of the men
  • 48% of children died

There wasn't enought boats to save everyone.

We think it's a good way to represent all of the person who died in the tragic incident and how it helps prevent other maritim and techological tragedy from happenig. It also shows that we need to be carefull with what we product and make sure there is no risks or that there are ways to secure people before using important technology.We also think that the creators of the memorial could have mention the rest of the people who died and the fact that it was mostly third class who had to stay on the boat.
