The deadliest sinking of a #ship in recorded #history appears to be the sinking of the 'Wilhelm Gustloff', a ship which for the most part carried #German #refugees. I will translate the text in the below image for you. It says:
'January 30 is boat-#refugee-memorial-day!
In no accident or (terror-)attack did ever die more people at sea [ I think that that qualification may even be omitted; e.g., 9/11 and Pearl Harbour COMBINED caused far fewer casualties LG,I]; people who only wanted to save their lives and who were actual refugees without
an alternative to what they were doing. On January 30, 1945 a Soviet submarine sunk the 'Wilhelm Gustloff' with more than 10^4 passengers on board; more than 9000 died in the icy #BalticSea.'
