Abstract
The Titanic was one of the most luxurious boats of its time, as well as one of the most horrific tragedies in history. A few of the survivors include Ruth Elizabeth Becker, Violet Jessop, Charles Joughin, and the Margaret “Molly” Brown. These four have interesting characters. They did not treat themselves as victims, instead they learned from it and went forward. These survivors were very brave, honorable, and not one of them was selfish.

Titanic’s sinking is one of the most popular topics around the world. The sinking of the Titanic and history of both those who survived and those who were lost will never be forgotten.
