I am looking for any survivors or descendants of those aboard the SS Leopoldville that was sunk by a German U-boat, Dec. 24, 1944, in the English Channel. If you have a story to tell, please contact me at the historical society email account. Thank you.

Update: I have connected with family members Eldon Peterson and Alice Kaiser.Will also talk with Verna Kaiser, who is the aunt of Donald Dronenberg.

I would still love to hear from survivors or descendants of soldiers aboard the SS Leopoldville on Dec. 24, 1944. Please share your stories.
