Pictured is the 30th medal in the distinguished Jewish-American
Hall of Fame series. It commemorates
21-year-old David Sarnoff, who relayed the names of the rescued from
the Carpathia's telegraph operator to newsmen and frantic family members,
and honors Isidore and Ida Straus, who tragically lost their
lives in the Titanic disaster on April 15, 1912.
On the reverse side is a poignant scene of a crowded lifeboat,
with the Titanic sliding into the ocean.
When the Titanic sank on its maiden voyage 1513 lives were lost.
These medals are dedicated to all the victims, so a maximum of
1513 medals have been authorized: 937 bronze, 500 pure silver,
and 50 10kt gold. For information please contact the
