Synopsis

A gripping, true story of faith on the high seas during World War II. An old Egyptian ocean liner carrying 144 missionaries, bound for mission work in Africa, was mistakenly shelled and sunk by a Nazi warship off the coast of South Africa. The passengers abandoned ship, and their precarious plight was filmed by two photographers who happened to be on board. Here is their amazing—and some would insist, miraculous—story.

Dove Review

This is an amazing story of faith and survival that took place during WWII. The ship Zamzam was on its way to South Africa with a load of missionaries when it was attacked and sunk by a Nazi warship. All the passengers survived both the ship’s sinking and the sinking of a life boat. The story is told by survivors, a true tale of God’s protection on the high seas.

This is an incredible story full of history, God’s love, and His protection. We are proud to award the Dove “Faith-Friendly” Seal for all ages to this fascinating story.
