On 8 Aug 1944 the Turkish ship MEFKURE was sunk in the Black Sea reportedly by the Soviet submarine SHCH-215.
There were only five survivors of over 350 people on board, Jewish refugees from Romania.
The MEFKURE was described as a 'motor vessel' or 'motor schooner' of 100 tons, of Turkish registry.
Can anyone provide any details as to the true identity or origin of this vessel?
