  History  
 
Lettens Jan24/12/2012In an unbelievable act of cruelty or stupidity, the Russian submarine SHCH-215 torpedoed and shelled the 52-tons turkish motor schooner MEFKURE, packed with Jewish refugees from Constanta to Istanbul. The attack happened north-west of the Bosphorus.

Of the 316 on board, only 6 crew (including the Captain) and 5 passengers survived. In a later statement, the Russian Government confirmed that the submarine believed the schooner was carrying about 200 soldiers.
