Emigration from Hamburg to U.S. (A Visit to Hamburg)


Eric Ellman
 

A few of my ancestors came to the U.S. on the Hamburg-America Line.  I am going to Hamburg for business in May and I am interested in exploring the places Jewish Emigrants from Europe might have stayed/visited before they left Hamburg for the U.S.  Do such places still exist?  Is there more information available?

Hamburg is a great city and the port is still very active.  Here's two museums to consider:

A book I recommend about the the subject is "Emigration Port Hamburg", by Jorg Berlin, 2000, published by Median-Verlag Schubert, Hamburg, ISBN3-929229-75-7.

My Dad, from Croatia via Vienna, worked there in 1910, at age 19,  as a Serbo-Croation passenger agent" for the Falck & Co., a shipping company, before he too hopped a ship to America.
