I would like to say for my self I am quite
serious. Real shock related to Titanic should
be /for this community and serious researchers
and others institutions/ a fact, that after
almost hundred years after tragedy I discovered
a person who survived the tragedy but her name
is not in official records.MYSTAKE OR NOT
we will see.Her grave is 90 kilometers far
from Belgrade a little village
and I have a plan to visit her grave and make
talk with her relatives very soon.

Another of those policies was signed by Djuro Desich for his wife, Milka. This one we know for sure. Milka Desich was one of the survivors from the Titanic when it sunk in 1912! (She is still not listed on any official Titanic lists and this infuriates me as it seems book authors do not wish to have any more survivors known.) <
Back in the good old days of newsprint there was a junior-grade version of The National Enquirer named The Weekly World News. Its front page carried headlines such as "Polynesian Bat Boy Found Alive in Cave," or "Ancient Egyptian Pyramid Really A Nuclear Reactor!" accompanied by appropriately crude paste-up illustrations.
Following Ballard's 1985 discovery, Titanic stories appeared fairly regularly. My favorites were:
Titanic Survivor found Alive in Lifeboat...and he thinks it's still 1912!
Skeletons of Titanic's Musicians Discovered Still Clutching Their Instruments!
The latter had a picture of three skeletal images that looked like they were lifted from Gray's Anatomy holding a violin, (naturally), a bass fiddle, and a trumpet. The trumpet's mouthpiece was glued to the teeth of one of the skeletons. I cut out the story and put it on the 'fridge and it brightened many a dreary day until it got lost in a move in the 1990s. (I believe there was a follow-up to the effect that the late Michael Jackson obtained the trio and put them in his basement, but I can't swear to it. I wonder where those old bones are today. Perhaps silently collecting dust in an attic where they will await rediscovery a century hence?)
I would pay real money at auction to have an authenticated, vintage copy of that superb piece of investigative reporting. It was a prized possession.
