Belgium Migration Museum
Photographs of people who arrived on Ellis Island, New York, from Antwerp, Belgium are exhibited at the Red Star Line museum in Antwerp, Belgium on Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2013. The newly opened museum tells the universal story of migration based on the stories of actual Red Star Line passengers. Between 1873 and 1934, the Belgian shipping company Red Star Line transported approximately 2 million people from Antwerp to New York, many in pursuit of the 'American Dream'. (AP Photo/Virginia Mayo)
