Violin from the Titanic
There is a violin from the Titanic. It is sold for £900,000.
Why is the violin special? It is from the Titanic. It is a man’s violin. This man dies on the Titanic. This man is a violinist. He is very brave. He plays when the Titanic goes down.
The violin represents this brave man. It is a symbol from history, too.
Difficult words: sell (give for money), violinist (person who plays violin), brave (person who is brave has no fear).
A violin from the Titanic was sold for £900,000.
This violin belonged to a brave violinist. He played the violin while the Titanic went down. When he was finished with his music, he knew that there was no place in the lifeboat. He put his life jacket on, put the violin in a bag and got in the water. He was a good swimmer and maybe he thought he could survive.
The violin represents history and the man’s bravery.
Difficult words: lifeboat (small boat for saving people), life jacket (clothing filled with air to keep you above water), bravery (being brave).
“Right? Any more bids coming back in at £900,000? Nine hundred for the first time… for the second time… at £900,000, we’re going!”
“It’s not about the cash. It’s about what it is. It’s the most iconic there is. It’s history. It’s a brave man. The money is secondary. It is a very valuable item, there is no doubt about that. Wallace Hartley was very, very brave young man as were a lot of men and woman when Titanic sank.
The violin epitomises everything about that young man. He was a competent swimmer. He did his job, and when he was finished doing his job, he knew there was no place in the lifeboat. He put his life jacket on, put this in his bag, tied this to himself, got in the water, I think with every intention of surviving.”
Difficult words: bid (offer to pay), valuable (worn a lot of money), doubt (feeling of not being sure), sink (go under water), epitomise (be a typical example of something), competent (skilled), intention (plan).
