The Titanic's keel was laid at the Harland & Wolff shipyard in Northern Ireland on March 31, 1909. The steamer was equipped with a maximum of elegance and luxury to be used in the prestigious transatlantic liner service of the White Star Line. Two years later, on May 31, 1911, Titanic saw her launch. With a length of 269.04 m, a width of 28.19 m and a tonnage of 46,329 GRT, she was the largest ship in the world in 1912. Captain Edward John Smith transferred from the sister ship Olympic to the Titanic especially for the maiden voyage. On Wednesday, 10.04.1912, she set off from Southampton. The stops were Cherbourg (France) and Queenstown (Ireland) on the way to New York (USA). The crossing went smoothly until, due to numerous iceberg warnings, the lookout bell sounded on Sunday (14.04.1912) at about 23:40 (shipboard time). The ship struck the iceberg on the starboard side and sank after two hours and forty minutes in the icy waters of the Atlantic. Only 712 people survived the disaster.
