Storyboard Text

  • This is a tough voyage,from Germany to the U.S. We are so tired and hungry. I'm hoping we don't get separated.
  • I'm so glad we left behind the famine, wide spread unemployment, and political persecution. 
  • Another reason we are migrating to America  is to have better opportunities, live with a democratic constitution and low taxed fertile land.
  • Look papa, I see Ellis Island! I can't wait to see more Germans who have immigrated to the lower East side of Manhattan 
  • I know son, I heard there are many Germans there. It is like a little Germany. 
  • I wouldn't be too exited son. I heard the living conditions are poor, unsanitary, and it is like a slum.
  • What about the Germans settling in the mid-west?  
  • New German immigrants are also struggling as farmers there.
  • Work conditions are also poor. I heard there were low wages, dangerous work conditions, and long 12 hour days.
  • Hopefully not son, but I know child labor is common among new immigrants. 
  • Will I have to work as a cheap day-laborer mama?
  • If I become a craftsman in the urban area, I can possibly save up to live in better conditions.
  • I'm so glad my family was able to stick together after passing the physical exam, but I do miss my friends back home.
  • One Week Later
  • Unfortunately , we don't know any English and communicating with non-Germans is hard.
  • Sadly, our first day on U.S soil we were taken advantage of and robbed of all we had left. 
  • Although we terribly miss the rest of our family and are still getting by with minimal resources, I am still hopeful for the future.
