About Nicholas Naftel Alles
- RMS Lusitania survivor
Nicholas Naftel Alles, 50, was an auditor for the Hotel St. Regis Company. Although he lived in New York City, New York and had United States citizenship, he had an estate in England. He was on the Lusitania to hurry to the side of his dying mother. He paid $149.50 for his ticket, 46029, and cabin B-31. Alles survived the Lusitania sinking.
When the Lusitania was torpedoed, Alles was standing by the verandah café. He went down to his cabin to get a lifebelt. Then he went back on top and climbed to the funnel deck. At the time he thought that where he was was the safest spot on the Lusitania. He was washed off when the ship sank. Alles swam to an upturned boat.
