We read the article on the Titanic survivors (“The story of Titanic survivors Lean and ‘Filly’ Aks,” April 13) with great interest. We continue to serve on-board cruise ships as professional lecturer/entertainers. We also present our shows for various organizations and retirement centers locally and one of our most requested series of shows concerns nautical themes and the history of ships and early immigration. It was a delight to read about this Jewish immigrant and her small child as they came to America.
Please pass on our thanks to the author, Marshall Weiss, for an excellent look at one of the lesser-known survivors of this great disaster. We will keep Leah and Filly Aks in our minds as we present our shows locally and worldwide.
