Forgotten Ellis Island

 

Date Added: 23rd June 2019

Description:

A century ago, in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty, a massive public hospital was built on two small islands next to Ellis Island. It is there that the germs of the world converged as thousands of immigrants too sick to be admitted as citizens were treated in the hospital. Through interviews with former patients and medical staff comes the forgotten story of how America treated these newcomers.
