This is the first time I have read about the survival not just of third class men, but third class North European men and their families. So some people did fight to make sure they were saved, despite the obvious class distinction even at this time of the voyage. It shows that third class passengers who were took the initiative and found their way to the boat decks were treated the same as anyone else and with women and children found seats in half empty life boats. The whole family were saved, rare for the Titanic but an encouraging story to read.
