"A tribute to the over 12 million men, women and children who made the torturous journey from the old world to the new between 1890 and 1920. From the time these pilgrims left their homeland, they were beset by thieves, extortionists, and stopped by authorities at border crossings. At sea, they suffered from bad food, overcrowding, pestilence, and fire. At Ellis Island they faced the dreadful possibility of being turned back. An immigrant could be rejected for any of a dozen reasons--communicable disease, illiteracy, no visible means of support or the very suspicion of immortality. And, once in the United States, they were moved into urban ghettos or out into rural areas. Producer Charles Guggenheim weaves rare archival material with letters, diaries and oral interviews to depict the largest single human migration in recorded history"--Container
