Description

For half a century, Ellis Island was America's Golden Door. Entrance meant an opportunity for a new life. Rejection meant a return to hopelessness. This moving program uses hundreds of interviews from the Ellis Island Oral History Project to tell the incredible stories of immigration to America. Historians explore Ellis Island's sometimes insensitive policies. And rare photographs and films tell the true stories of those who passed through its doors--many of whom would go on to change the country forever. Join ELLIS ISLAND for an unforgettable testimony from the men, women and children who risked everything for one chance at the American dream! Now available for the first time on DVD! Includes the complete history of America's "Golden Door." Made with the full cooperation of the National Park Service. Narrated by stage and film star Mandy Patinkin. Features extensive interviews of immigrants and Ellis Island employees from the Ellis Island Oral History Project. Includes dramatic recreations that bring the immigrant experience to life.
