The Dutch opera St. Louis Blues of Chiel Meijering is based on true events that happened in 1939. The passenger ship St. Louis travels from Hamburg to Havana with 937 Jewish passengers on board. A journey that starts joyful and hopeful ends in deception when Cuba, The US and South-America close their borders to refugees. The ship returns to Europe with the 937 Jewish passengers whom face the same fate as millions of other Jews in WWII.
