Welcome back Nicholas Fessenden from the Baltimore Immigration Museum to speak about "Strangers in the
Land" 1882-1965. After the great wave of immigration in the late 19th century, Americans vigorously debated the issues of immigration from Europe. Congress established a quota in the 1920s for immigrants from each country. This tragically closed the doors to refugees fleeing from Nazi Germany and other countries in the 1930s. All are welcome to attend.
