The Way It Was: On the Lower East Side
What was life like on the Lower East Side?
From 1890 to 1920 millions of Jewish immigrants settled in New York City on the Lower East Side.
They left the poverty and oppression in Europe for a new life in a new land. In this engrossing book, children will learn about the immigrants’ daily lives—the homes they lived in, the foods they ate, the schools they went to, the work they did, and the games they played.
Jewish Life in America on the Lower East Side is part of The Way It Was, a series of fascinating books about everyday Jewish life in American history.
Each volume includes authentic photos and eyewitness accounts, as well as engaging text and design.
