The largest and most luxurious ship of its time was only 12 days in service, was in such a short time but the most famous ship in the history of mankind. On 14 April 1912 it crashed on its maiden voyage to New York with an iceberg and sank. The accident were about 1,500 passengers to the victim. Went for his book, the renowned journalist shipping Eigel Wiese and photographer in search of clues and traveled to Belfast for Harland and Wolff shipyard where the ship was giant. He visited the dock where the ship was built and visited some of the last ports, which started the ship before it set out on his fateful journey. At all these places are remembered today, the ship that was to conquer the world. But why the Titanic was such a myth? Eigel Wiese spoke to philosophers, historians, and those people who keep the memory of the ship still alive and trying to find an answer to this question. Finally played the then press a key role: The Sinking of the Titanic can be regarded as the first media hype of history and has been exploited accordingly. Furthermore, the book provides an overview of memorials, museums and collections to the Titanic.
