The Emigration Museum BallinStadt Hamburg focuses on emigration from Hamburg (from 1850 to 1934) and the development of migration over four historical epochs. The stories are always accompanied by human cravings, fates and stories.
The reasons to migrate are timeless. Escape from war, hunger and persecution or just simply a thirst for adventure, curiosity and the dream of a new and better life were the motivation for emigration and immigration then and now.
