Isidor And Ida: The Couple On Board The Titanic Who Showed True Love To The Very End
December 15, 2017
Love stories captivate almost everybody. Book authors and filmmakers find inspiration for their works in amazing true stories. However, sometimes, genuine romantic events are blurred or completely erased by fiction that adds details to the characters and movie script.
This is the case of the love story between Isidor and Ida Straus. This 67-year-old couple, who were aboard the Titanic, lived through details which were the inspiration used to write the characters of Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt — who, it's worth mentioning, were fictional characters created by film director James Cameron. However, neither of these two were used in the beautiful story.
