The Titanic Survivor was condemned for not dying with other passengers
Of the more than 700 survivors of the Titanic, one was a Japanese named Masabumi Hosono (15 October 1870 – 14 March 1939), a civil servant working for the Ministry of Transport. He was the only Japanese passenger on the RMS Titanic‘s disastrous maiden voyage. He survived the ship’s sinking on 15 April 1912 but found himself condemned and ostracised by the Japanese public, press, and government for his decision to save himself rather than go down with the ship. He survived by boarding Lifeboat 10 but was fired and called a coward when he returned to Japan because he survived instead of dying an honourable death with the other doomed passengers.
