About This Lesson

This lesson introduces images and artifacts, created by late 19th century and early 20th Jewish immigrants to the United States that celebrated the opportunities for Jewish immigrants in the U.S. and encourage fellow Jews in Eastern Europe to emigrate. These images are contrasted with an anti-Semitic cartoon from the same period.

Essential Questions:

  1. Why do people leave their homes to migrate? 
  2. What does integration look like?
  3. How do images from media influence the way people think about migration and immigration?
  4. What can we understand about immigration today by studying the past?
