Forgotten Ellis Island (Book)
Title: Forgotten Ellis Island
Author: Lorie Conway
Editor: Harper Collins
Abstract: A century ago, in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty, one of the world's great public hospitals was built. Massive and modern, the hospital's twenty-two state-of-the-art buildings were crammed onto two small islands, man made from rock and dirt excavated during the building of the New York subway.
The Ellis Island Hospital was at once welcoming and foreboding-a fateful crossroad for hundreds of thousands of hopeful immigrants. Those nursed to health were allowed entry to America. Those deemed feeble of body or mind were deported.
