Leaving Europe – Digital Public Library of America and Europeana launch joint exhibition

Europeana has launched a new virtual exhibition “Leaving Europe:  A new life in America” , jointly curated by the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) and Europeana.  Over 30 million Europeans, from as far north as Scandinavia and as far south as Sicily, set sail to America in the 19th century and the first quarter of the 20th century.   The exhibition uses unique material from U.S. and European libraries, museums and archives to document people’s journeys across the European continent and their settlement in the United States. “Leaving Europe” is the starting point of a long-term relationship between the two digital libraries.
