Isidor and Ida Straus perished during the sinking of the Titanic. On the night of the disaster, as the call to board the lifeboats went out, Isidor escorted Ida to Lifeboat 8 and prepared to say goodbye to her. Ida, however, refused to enter the small boat, saying, “We have lived together for many years. Where you go, I go.” The Strauses were last seen seated side by side on Titanic’s Boat Deck.
