More About Children of Ellis Island by Barry Moreno
 
 
 
Overview
Burdened with bundles and baskets, a million or more immigrant children passed through the often grim halls of Ellis Island. Having left behind their homes in Europe and other parts of the world, they made the voyage to America by steamer. Some came with parents or guardians. A few came as stowaways. But however they traveled, they found themselves a part of one of the grandest waves of human migration that the world has ever known. Children of Ellis Island explores this lost world and what it was like for an uprooted youngster at America s golden door. Highlights include the experience of being a detained child at Ellis Island the schooling and games, the pastimes and amusements, the friendships, and the uneasiness caused by language barriers."
