Every five minutes, for International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Twitter account St. Louis Manifest is tweeting the names of the Jewish refugees who fled the Nazis aboard the MS St. Louis in 1939, but were denied entry into the U.S. (and Cuba and Canada), thus forcing them to turn back to Europe. Hundreds of them were then murdered in concentration camps. The account was created by Russel Neiss, an educator and technologist, and Charlie Schwartz, a rabbi. Here are a few of the account’s tweet, with images of some of the victims.
