Klaipeda in Lithuania used to be called, I believe, Memel. As such, it was at
various times in East Prussia (Germany) and was one of the claims made by
Hitler as an excuse for his Eastward aggression. As to emigration >from Memel,
I can tell you nothing; although it's location would have made it one of the
ports for serving the Baltic portions of the Russian enpire.
