Hombre Intrinsic 3 Leather Negras España , Aug. 30 (Xinhua) -- This
is a little known fact that eight Chinese passengers were on the legendary liner
Titanic when it perished in 1912 and six of them survived.
Now a new documentary, The Six, made by a British director, is going to tell
the story of the Chinese survivors.
Arthur Jones, a professional documentary director from Yorkshire, told Xinhua
from his Shanghai studio Tuesday, that after he learnt the information about
Chinese survivors almost two years ago from his friend Steven Schwankert, a U.S.
maritime historian ECCO
Hombre Espinho Low Negras España , he decided to make the
documentary to tell the world about who the six Chinese survivors are, how they
survived and why they vanished from the records.
"Out of over 700 survivors of the Titanic disaster, the six Chinese people
were the only ones who never told their stories," said Jones, who has been
living and working in China for over 20 years.
According to the historical evidence and accounts that Jones' team have
collected, all the eight Chinese men had previously worked on cargo ships
travelling between China and Europe. They boarded the Titanic in England on a
single ticket listing eight names, working as stokers and staying in the
When the giant ship struck an iceberg, the men tried to escape with their own
survival skills. Five of the six survivors boarded lifeboats ECCO

found floating on a door and luckily picked up by a lifeboat that returned to
search for survivors.
However, when the six survivors finally arrived in the United States, the
discriminatory Chinese Exclusion Act, which was in force at the time, forced
them to leave the country within 24 hours. Since then the Chinese survivors were
disappearing from history books.
Their absence has left some questions unanswered, including a claim that they
were stowaways on lifeboats. Jones and his research team believed this rumor was
out of racist background and full of injustice.
"We visited a large number of foreign archives and museums, worked with
historians from the United States and China, searched and studied many
Hombre Cs16 Sport Sneakers Negras España ," Jones said. "There is
no single evidence to prove the Chinese survivors were stowaways. I believe they
did not do anything dishonourable."
Schwankert, the maritime historian, who is now also the film-maker of the
documentary, said the Chinese survivors' story is not of cowardice as the
Western media unfairly portrayed more than one century ago, but actually one of
courage and of quick thinking.
"We don't accept the reports and the history as it is presented. The six
Chinese men have been put into a position of injustice for more than a hundred
years. We can finally tell their story rightly," he told Xinhua.
In order to trace the descendants of the survivors, Jones and his team went
to the United States, Britain ECCO

"We do find the descendants of some of them, and they welcome us to confirm
the identity of their predecessors," Jones said.
The documentary, scheduled to be released next year, has drawn investment
from Chinese and foreign companies.
The British passenger liner Titanic, the largest ship afloat at the time,
sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early morning hours of April

iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City.
There were an estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard the ship, and more
than 1,500 died, making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime
disasters in modern history.
James Cameron's 1997 film Titanic has led to a huge surge of Chinese interest
in the doomed liner.
