The unhappy history of hull 161

When my family emigrated from Europe in the late 1950ís we travelled aboard the Arosa Sky, a medium-sized passenger liner making her maiden voyage across the Atlantic. When I researched what had happened to the ship I uncovered an eventful history. She started out as Hull 161, sailed throughout the world under four different names, was involved in two wars, sank twice, and ended up as an underwater tourist attraction.
