About Latifa Baclini (Qurban)

Mrs Solomon Baclini (Latifa Qurban), 24, was born in Schweir, Syria (now Lebanon).

Latifa boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg with her three daughters: Eugenie, Helene Barbara and Maria Catherine. They were travelling from their home in Syria (now Lebanon - they would have considered themselves to be Lebanese) to join Latifa's husband who was already in New York. They were not originally scheduled to travel on the Titanic but Maria developed conjunctivitis (pick eye) and they had to abandon plans to board their original ship in Cherbourg, until it cleared up.

The Titanic was the first available ship when they were ready to resume their journey so they booked passage in third class. Travelling with them was Miss Adele Jane Kiamie Najib who was going to the United States to be married. Mrs Baclini was serving as her chaperone since Miss Najib was only in her teens.
