Leaving their past behind them, immigrants feeing poverty, discrimination, dictatorship arrived there. Ellis Island was the gateway to the United States for millions of immigrants.

A purgatory of sorts, in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty, where thousands of men, women and children awaited their fate.
