Michel Navratil
"Paris - Michel Navratil, one of the last known survivors of the Titanic, died Wednesday in southern France. He was 92. Mr. Navratil was 3 years old when the Titanic sank after striking an iceberg in 1912. He was the last known male survivor, said the Titanic Historical Society in Springfield, Mass. Mr. Navratil and his 2-year-old brother, Edmond, were traveling with their father, who was separated from his wife and had taken his sons on the voyage without permission. His father went down with the ship. The two boys were rescued by the Carpathia, the first ship to reach the scene of the sinking after racing through waters filled with icebergs. When they reached the United States, they were taken in by a woman who met them aboard the ship. Their mother learned of their survival by reading newspaper reports about the boys, nicknamed "The Orphans of the Titanic." In later life, Mr. Navratil became a professor of philosophy."
