Review:

"Enlightening...the introduction by Pamela S. Nadell of American University is excellent." - Inter Mountain Jewish News; "The author of The Promised Land describes her family's frightening and exciting journey to America in the 1890s. Like thousands of other Russian-Jewish immigrants, she and her family had to travel through Germany to the port of Hamburg before embarking for the New World. One of the most striking aspects of Antin's account of her journey is the description of the methods the Germans used to handle large numbers of transients, mostly Russian Jews, moving through Germany at the time." - Judaica Book News
