history

in my book, it shows a 1915 american newspaper clipping and i have to answer questions...this is what the clipping looks like. on the right side it says:
NOTICE!
TRAVELLERS intending to embark on the Atlantic voyage are reminded that a Britian, that a state of war exists between Germany and her allies and Great Britian and her allies; that the zone of war includes the waters adjacent to the British Isles; that in accordance with formal notice given by the Imperial German Government vessels flying the flag of Great Britian, or of any of her allies, are liable to destruction in those waters and that travellers sailing in the war zone on ships of Great Britian or her allies do so at their own risk.
IMPERIAL GERMAN EMBASSY
WASHINGTON, D.C., APRIL 22, 1915

and on the right side it says:
CUNARD
(under this is the picture of a ship)
EUROPE VIA LIVERPOOL
LUSITANIA
FASTEST AND LARGEST STEAMER
NOW IN ATLANTIC SERVICE SAILS
SATURDAY, MAY 1, 10 A.M.
Transylvania, Fri May 7, 5 PM
Orduna, Tues, May 18, 10 AM
Tuscania, Fri, May 21, 5PM
LUSITANIA, Sat, May 29, 10 AM

a. who placed this notice, and why?
( the imperial german embassy??)
b. whom is the notice addressing, and what is its main message?
(..?)
c. what is the connection between the ship advertised on the right and the notice on the left?
d. what happened to the Lusitania?


if anyone can help me with any of this it would be greatly appreciated :)

  1. Yes, the German embassy placed this notice.

    What does this part say about whom the notice is addressing and the main message?
    " vessels flying the flag of Great Britian, or of any of her allies, are liable to destruction in those waters and that travellers sailing in the war zone on ships of Great Britian or her allies do so at their own risk."

    What do you think the connection is between the notice and the advertisement?

    For the last question, check this site.

  3. Nope. Look again at this sentence:

    "TRAVELLERS intending to embark on the Atlantic voyage are reminded . . ."
