Full Answer

Millvina has no memory of her time on the ill-fated ship; she was only 2 months old when the Titanic went down. Millvina was also the youngest person on the ship. The last surviving male passenger was Michel Navratil, who died at the age of 92 in 2001. He was 3 years old when the ship sank and did have memories of his time on the ship, especially of the moment his father came in and told him he was going on a life raft without his parents. Michel was known as one of the "Titanic Orphans," having lost his father in the disaster, though his estranged mother later reclaimed him when she saw photos of Michel and his brother in a newspaper.
