    The Children of the Titanic
    And we have made it to the last, and possibly the saddest picture on our list. Despite being selected as the first to be put on the lifeboats, 60 children did not survive the sinking. The two boys who did survive, Michel and Edmond Navratil, are pictured here in New York. Their father died a noble death when he put both of them on the lifeboat while he drowned.

    Both kids and their father were second-class passengers, and their mother did not go on the trip. Thankfully, they were reunited with her after a couple of weeks, and they are considered as one of the most beautiful stories of fatherly love that the world has ever seen.
