To add to my research into the history of HAPAG vessel Antilla, I would be grateful for any information (pictures, building plans) on MS (or ES) Antilla which was scuttled on May 10, 1940 in Aruban waters. I furthermore would be interested in information on the faith of the Antilla crew after being transported from Bonaire (Dutch Antilles) to a prison camp in Jamaica on July 5, 1940 and/or (post war) information regarding her captain Ferdinand Schmidt.
