75 Years Ago—Feb. 3, 1943: US Army troop transport Dorchester is sunk by German U-boat U-223 off Greenland, 675/904 killed; four chaplains of different faiths give away their life jackets and go down with the ship, arms linked and offering prayers.

Britain allows 5000 Bulgarian Jews, mostly children, to emigrate to Palestine.

    Wow! I never heard this story before. It makes you wonder how many other individual acts of sacrifice and valor probably happened during this conflict that we’ll never hear about, but the Lord knows!

    Thanks, Sarah.
