First-hand testimonials from those that crossed the Atlantic and their children, document one of the largest migrations in Canadian history, capturing the sadness and the joy they found in their new lives. Pier 21 examines the plight of these immigrants from emotional goodbyes to a fortnight at sea and arrival on the shores of an unfamiliar land. Pier 21 is also an important historical record of the social conditions and attitudes that confronted these new immigrants.
