Description

For three decades the Windrush was the maritime Zelig of the twentieth century, playing different roles in the most turbulent years in modern times. Designed in 1930 in the Hamburg boatyard of a Jewis... h shipbuilder to ferry Germans to a new life in South America, it wasn't long before Goebbels requisitioned her as one of his 'Strength Through Joy' vessels. However, her duties soon darkened: she became a Nazi troop carrier, a support vessel for the pocket battleship Tirpitz and a prison ship transporting Jews to Auschwitz. Captured by the British in Kiel in 1945 and renamed the SS Empire Windrush, she then spent years evacuating displaced service people and, in her famous single voyage from the Caribbean, she brought the first wave of black migrants to Britain, thus changing the country's ethnic makeup for all time. Windrush: The Soul of a Ship is Paul Arnott's vivid biography of a unique vessel, combining the memories of people who were there with a gripping account of an extraordinary merchant ship at the end of empires. AUTHOR: Paul Arnott's career in media began at the Independent and Time Out as an arts correspondent before becoming a television producer, mainly with Channel Four. He also owns a production company, Edenwood Productions, and is the author of A Good Likeness: A Personal Story of Adoption (Little, Brown), Let Me Eat Cake (Hodder) and Is Anybody Up There? (Hodder). He lives in Devon. 12 b/w images
