A British diver is preparing an expedition to determine whether a shipwreck discovered off Istanbul is the remains of a vessel carrying Jewish refugees fleeing the Holocaust that was torpedoed and sunk. Earlier this month, Turkish divers said they located the wreck of the Struma, believed to have been sunk by a Russian torpedo in February 1942, killing 778 people.
