This is the first film about the once abandoned immigrant hospital on Ellis Island. In the era before antibiotics, tens of thousands of immigrant patients were separated from family, detained in the hospital, and healed from illness before becoming citizens. 350 babies were born, and ten times that many immigrants died on Ellis Island, 3,500 were buried in pauper's graves around New York City.

Good Historical Account

Comments about PBS Forgotten Ellis Island DVD:

As an immigrant, I found this to be fascinating. It's filled with little-known facts about the people who came before me to make this country great as well as gives an insight into the humane side of Ellis Island.

Our National Heritage - Ellis Island

Comments about PBS Forgotten Ellis Island DVD:

It was fascinating to see how the masses of people were evaluated. What courage it took to make the tough decisions. I had no idea that there were specialty hospitals.

For the classroom

By School librarian

from Washington, D.C.

Comments about PBS Forgotten Ellis Island DVD:

This adds a visual and emotional dimension to the learning experience for those studying immigration primarily through printed texts. As a primary source, students view the immigrants arrivals, processing and challenges directly. A unique way to introduce the topic, and to precipitate discussion among students.

Forgotten Ellis Island

By Ruby the Red

from Marshfield, Wisconsin

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS Forgotten Ellis Island DVD:

I toured Ellis Island this spring, along with Liberty Island, and this video gave me a whole new insight into what I imagined to be the daily procedures on the island. The people being interviewed were, of course, very small when they were in the hospital and their recollections added realism to the video. Going down the corridors and entering some rooms will be even more realistic once they are restored. Excellent insight and narration!
