I'm sympathetic politically to your angle but I have to strongly dispute that the Carpathia's third class accommodation would have been "mediocre".The Royal Mail Ship Carpathia, along with many others, carried many immigrants in mediocre conditions. However, their struggle has been overlooked for so long. What was third class like on the Carpathia?
The odds are very strongly against anything like that happening. You can discount that story.I supposedly had a distant relative aboard the Carpathia traveling third class. I don't know her name but she was traveling back to Austria-Hungary to introduce her baby to the family there. I have heard that she was made to give up her quarters to the Titanic survivors and had to sleep on the deck with her child leaning against the smokestack to try to keep warm.
Where did you get this information? I'd like to research the third class further.I'm sympathetic politically to your angle but I have to strongly dispute that the Carpathia's third class accommodation would have been "mediocre".
Luxurious ? Not by any means. Cunard however were a popular and respected company who would have provided perfectly acceptable bunks bedding, sanitation and dining facilities to their third class passengers. It would have been a bare basic kind but nonetheless probably more clean and tidy than some of the homes they had left behind in Europe's most poverty and crime ridden cities.

No one in their right mind would forced a woman to sleep on deck with a baby particularly when the temperature at night was freezing. That just flies in the face of common sense.
Carpathia's third class passengers were shuffled around to free up some room for Titanic survivors but many of the latter still had to sleep in the smoking rooms, lounges and dining rooms for want of room.
