THE LAST SHIPS FROM HAMBURG Business, Rivalry, and the Race to Save Russia's Jews on the Eve of World War I

by | Read by Arthur Morey

History • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Arthur Morey's pleasing baritone is a wonderful match for this account of the mass migration of Eastern European Jews to the New World. The whole journey involved many people and eventually became big business for bankers, shipping companies (including the White Star Line of TITANIC fame,) railroads, and charities/NGOs, such as the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS). I myself, along with so many others, am descended from ancestors who made this journey. This account is fascinating, and Morey's narration is splendid. He is appropriately expressive, pronounces words clearly, and has perfect pacing. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2024]
