This iReport is part of an assignment:
Stretch out your arms: 'Titanic' is back!
- nsaidi, CNN iReport producer
I'm going to take a different approach to this story -- instead of mugging arms out for the camera I thought it might be more interesting to see something from the actual disaster itself.
These photos are of the recovered victims from the sinking laid to rest in a cemetary in Halifax, Nova Scotia. There are over 150 markers here, making this the largest single concentration of Titanic victims in the world (Halifax was used as a base for the sinking's recovery effort).
The most moving marker is that of an anonymous 2-year old found during the recovery. No one knows the child's name and records at the time didn't reveal who the parents were -- but as you can see people are still touched by this particular victim and are still leaving little mementos to this day.
