SHIP OF HOPE AND SORROW

The Baltimore Sun

In the shade of Baltimore's World Trade Center, a prominent plaque overlooks the Inner Harbor. Near this spot, the Baltimore steamer President Warfield began her epic voyage into history. If none of that immediately strikes a chord, the inscription soon solves the mystery by revealing that the Warfield, a converted Chesapeake Bay steamship, made that journey under another name:

Exodus 1947.

The Jewish Museum of Maryland will commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Exodus' journey with presentations and discussions from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. April 25 at the Chizuk Amuno Congregation, 8100 Stevenson Road. "Sailing into Uncharted Waters: President Warfield/Exodus 1947" is open to the public. Information: 410-732-6400.
