Book - 1997
Rate this:
A truly unique account of what Ellis Island immigrants endured on their journeys to freedom from Europe, the Middle East, and elsewhere. Produced in co-operation with the Ellis Island Research Foundation, this book is an unparalleled collection of 130 first-hand accounts from 130 immigrants. These last surviving immigrants describe in compelling detail their reasons for leaving their native shores, the lives they left behind, their passage, what they endured, and what became of them. Ellis Island closed in 1954 after 62 years of processing immigrants. It is believed that over forty per cent of today's US population are descendants of Ellis Island-processed immigrants.
