Mr Tido (Ejdo) Rekić

Mr Tido (Ejdo) Rekić, 38, from Krupa, Bosnia (Austria Hungary) was married with four sons and two daughters.  

He had emigrated to America in 1906 to work in a mine.  He returned to Bosnia to visit his wife and children.  

When he returned to America he took three friends with him.  Their destination was Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

He bought his ticket from the agent: Viktor Klaus-Wildi, Buchs for 293 Swiss francs (ticket number 349249, £7 17s 11d).

Rekić died in the sinking. His body, if recovered, was never identified.

On the 100th anniversary of the sinking, a memorial to the four Bosnians that died in the sinking was erected in Bosanska Krupa.


  1. Mr Rekić's last name is often erroneously given as Kekic. Tido may be a misspelling or Anglicization.
  2. Hometown sometimes given as Batic, Bosnia.
