Storyboard Text

  • First we had to undergo Physical health examinations. Doctors would use chalk marks to identify people with health problems. Since i am only 14 i was already pretty healthy. Some people were sent to the hospital at Ellis Island if there condition was treatable. 
  • Next after my mama and I passed the Health examination we were asked a bunch of questions about ourselves, jobs and where we were going to settle in America. My mama tells them that were going to Cincinnati. Later she tells me that most of the German Jews are headed there because it was the gateway to trade in the Midwest and West. 
  • Once we arrived my mama first went to find a job which was difficult at first because she was Jewish. But finally she found a job that paid low. Life in America was hard at first because we were so different but as time went on we started to fit in as true Americans. 
  • My mama eventually got a job at a shirt factory. I was enrolled at school and at first everyone stared but as time went on I found friend that looked just like me!
