On the occasion of its first anniversary the Red Star Line Museum organized a contest. The winner was the contestant who had not only deposited a Happy Birthday Card in the urn at the museum, but had also given the correct answer to the contest question: Irving Berlin, as well as the bonus question: 631 participants. The name of the winner was announced during the preview of the exhibition ‘Far away from the war?’.

Stijn and Sophie will follow in the footsteps of the migrants who also traveled to New York by boat. Nine finalists went home with a surprise pack that contained among other things the much sought-after ‘New York’ arrows.

The contest was made possible thanks to the support of our sponsors Cunard Lines and SN Brussels Airlines.
