Most of the people on board survived the wreck, only to become victims of a visionary psychopath who, with the help of a dozen followers, organised a methodical massacre of this hapless community. In its time, the tragedy of the 'Batavia' seized the European imagination even more than the sinking of the 'Titanic' did in the 20th century. The discovery of the wreck some forty years ago revived interest in this sinister episode, and archeological investigations continue to this day." 20 000957
