Emigration from Central Europe to America 1880 – 1914

"The real question is not why so many Europeans emigrated, but why so many stayed at home."

Dudley Baines
Emigration From Europe 1815 - 1930.
Macmillan, Basingstoke & London 1991.


During the hundred years of European emigration, from the Napoleonic wars until the end of World War I, some 50 million people moved overseas, which seriously affected the social fabric on both sides of the ocean - in the emigrants’ homelands and in their adopted countries.

Although the memories of Merikani, our distant ancestors, have faded, new migrations of the modern world are a reminder of the constant problem of running away from the ancestral home and homeland.

The aim of this exhibition is to remind us of the complex organization of the trans-Atlantic exodus and of touching destinies of emigrants
