German Immigration

The DANK Haus German American Cultural Center and Museum currently has an exhibit entitled Hamburg Emigration Port: A Visual Story of German Emigration..
Between 1850 and 1939, more than five million European emigrants left their homelands via the Port of Hamburg.  They came from Central and Eastern Europe, as well as Germany.   This exhibit reflects the complicated patterns of immigration in the nineteenth century.
