About the Webinar

Much has been documented about the experiences of southern Italian immigrants after they arrived in North America during the mass migration period from 1880 to 1920. There is less information available about the agonizing decision to leave everything behind and venture into the unknown. Mark Hehl, the author of the book An Immigrant’s Dilemma, will take us back to this time and explore the factors that caused these individuals to make this agonizing decision. He will also provide insight into what it was like crossing the Atlantic aboard steerage class for these immigrants, as some of these were our ancestors.
