ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the response of the New York Syrian community to the sinking of the Titanic ship in April 1912. Lists of names of those who boarded the ship appearing in English language newspapers could not confirm the names of Syrian passengers. The phonetics and pronunciation of Arabic names were confusing and inaccurate. As Arabic newspapers attempted to update the names, readers were reminded that as more information was gathered corrections would be made and that any and all names and details of passengers would continue to be published.
