This isn't the only example. Look up the "Cap Arcona."

The brits thought a cruise ship was going to be used to evacuate high ranking nazis to Sweden, so they sank it and ordered everyone in the water be strafed. Turns out it was being used to evacuation concentration camp prisoners out of soviet territory.

good call. Thank you. I hadn't heard about either of these cases.

I find more of these little "woops, left that out of the history curriculum" all the time.
