I was five or six months old when we traveled by ship from Germany to the States. There was a storm on the way, and injured passengers had to be evacuated by medical boats.
So this video is the last footage my parents took of Germany, a bit aboard ship (including a snippet of me being held by my mother near the end), and arriving in Alabama.
The song is "Sentimental Journey," sung by Doris Day with the Les Brown Orchestra. This was one of my parents' favorite songs, and I often heard my mother sing it.
